If anyone could tell me the vital information that I need to know about it, that would be very helpful.

The basics that I need to know are the following: The maximum specifications are just that, maximum that can’t be exceeded.

There are others but make sure they are fully on at 5v on the gate.

The key parameters you need to look at in a datasheet are: There’s so many different drivers to choose from. I am trying to find a 3 or 4 amp transistor that the arduino can turn on.

MarkT Brattain Member Posts: Therefore it is best to have a discharge resistor from gate to Gnd. This is important especially when you use PWM as it will get excessively hot without the R.

And if you have an Internation Rectifier datasheet they lie blatantly about max current anyway. I bought mine from RS Components.



I want to make sure that I am reading and understanding the datasheets, and was hoping some of you people could clarify things for me. When you remove the gate voltage, there is a time taken to discharge the gate capacitor internal. Its best to use a gate drive voltage about twice dtaasheet plateau voltage as this gives roughly symmetrical switching times.

At 5 volts it may be 5A while at 10 volts it may be 50A. I just don’t remember if this is how a mosfet works too. I hope they work with the mosfets I ordered.

Trying to remember programming C from 25yrs ago. Any suggestions on a driver that works well with the arduino outputs? I’m not using the mosfets to drive 24 volt robot motors.

You don’t need to look at the max current ifrp460 if you do your sums right with Rds on you’ll never be anywhere near this, its an extreme thermal limit.

It works with 5v on the gate and handles a few amps with ease. It varies according to the device. EG, at 2 volts on the gate the current is very low.

Here’s the datasheet stats for those transistors: With the arduino, you need is a logic level gate mosfet.

I’ve been doing some reading, and I think for my purposes I’ll be needing a mosfet driver. Johannesburg hams call me: I want to make dagasheet that I am buying the right mosfets for the job, because these things can be rather expensive. Read the data to see what the series resistance and possible current flow at a particular gate voltage. I’m using them for a load at v – v at 10amps. So they work fine with the pwm from the arduino? I’m sure we’ve been here before with this, but I’ll suggest these drivers again to you from that other thread we were orfp460 discussions.

Or does the source voltage have to be 0 as well for the mosfet to turn off? I am thinking of driving the mosfet gate using a push-pull setup with npn pnp BJT transistors.

I am planning on purchasing some mosfets for a number of projects I have on the go at the moment. Also, will the mosfet turn off when the gate voltage is dropped to 0?

You may also be interested in the body-diode’s performance and the Vgs max and the plateau voltage usually only hinted at in graphs. So I need the bigger mosfets.


JimboZA on Feb 04, They are considerably higher than what it orfp460 run with continuously. Here is a mosfet I was thinking of buying.
