It’d be fully on by 4V or so, versus the needed by the regular FET. Im actualy pondering the same question as Legolas.

IRF – Infineon Technologies

Is it possible to use two or maybe three IRF to handle more amperage? A logic level mosfet means that it is designed to turn on fully from the logic level of a microprocessor. You could consider the FQP27P It shows the same behaviour when I use 3. Also the and will be more efficient with this circuit.

At 5 Volt GS it can however only take some 4. I was not aware of those.

Good luck, but dont hesitate to ask again shld you need further advice. I noticed that the range is very low. It already switches on at much lower voltages, albeit not completely, but the optimal voltage is around Volt.

Then indeed the FET will open but it cannot go above 5Volt at the irr1405, because then it will close again as the VGStsh is around Thanks in advance, Ruben. Or for a power rectifier? So, mistakes during development can be fatal. If for instance you want to switch 5A in a 12V circuit and you only want to waste 0.


One supervisory driver controller will send control signals to each of the two H-bridge drivers. Thanks, perhaps we are just discussing terminology here. The only conditions are it should have high switching speed so low rds on and high break down voltage.

Using MOSFETS with TTL levels (5 Volt and 3.3 Volt)

In my schematic I use an output with a small resistor Ohms in series with dstasheet gate of the N Channel Mosfet STP3NA and my load is in drain like the first schematic showed in this post, but I have no R1 resistor between gate and source, I only have a resistor like R1 in the second schematic. OK I try again: Notify me of new comments via email. I have chosen to put one in just to be sure.

Rds 38mOhm with a Vgs of 3. Learn how your comment data is processed.

Thank you for the clear explanation. But suppose the FET you choose has 0. I just touched the gate pin to turn motor on. What kind of lamp is it? Here is the curve for the IRL The datasheet indicates max Vgs 4V but the curve shows that at 5V the mosfet can deliver current way above my requirement.

We will test them on a heavy load, and see how hot they get with heatsinks. Quote of the day. Use a baseresistor of say Ohm. So we’ve pretty much settled on the “open source motor controller” design.

If your current choice has a lower Rds than a lesser-spec logic-level FET, it’ll generate less heat even though it’s less “on”. The Vce in saturation is about 0.

According to your post and the datasheet, the IRLN should have no problem supplying the current at this voltage, right? An dataheet could do that as well. My questions please – 1 Is the IRF OK for this application or is there another device that would be better suited?

If I parallel two devices can I connect the two gates together or should I separate each with a resistor? At 8A it is not even breaking a sweat. Jon likes these hall-effect sensors over shunt resistors: Joe, good idea, but as I picture your changes, the emittor will be at 12 Volt when open, while yr Arduino will set the basis at a max of 5Volt, which would cause the transistor to close again.

Though that seems like the FET is suitable for an Arduino, I do not think it is an optimal combination.

Yes im using Arduino to control the circuit. How can I find the current in the LED? Hello — Great post!
