The only caveat using those AO parts, is their size: The simplest circuit is just a 12 V regulator but that is very inefficient. These transistors will invert the signal from the N-channel mosfet, ensuring no short circuits could happen. This is not the gate voltage to turn the device on, its the gate voltage at which it switches fully off less than a few uA of current, typically.
At 5 Volt GS it can however only take some 4. You are limited to a current of about mA. Sometimes a Datzsheet seems to be driving a mosfet correctly, but only a careful measurement will show the mosfet is not getting fully turned on, overheating and wasting power.

The datasheet indicates max Vgs 4V but the curve shows that at 5V the mosfet can deliver current way above my requirement Thank you for your help. Looking at the curve, at a gate to source voltage of 5V the IRF is hardly turned on. Setting a temperature to a comfortable level arduino switches the mosfet on for sec followed by a 50sec off time.
Well, you would need to put an inverter before the circuit i provided, either by a logical gate or with yet another transistor. That just will make your circuit much easier and save you a transistor and resistor. The Vce in saturation is about 0.
Good luck with your project. The STP3NA I do not know very well and I couldnt quickly find a readable datasheet, but though it doesnt seem to be a Logic level FET, from what I could see, it should open enough around 3 volt already… but if you have a better datasheet, please check that.
Realise though that it is an inverting circuit.
Is this what you mean? I will try source a IRL Would like to have a non inverting driver, do you have any recommendation how to solve this, or best IC driver for arduino. Thanks for your contribution. Datasheeg am not sure if there is an easier way to do it.
Anyway, depending on your circuit, I am not sure if you need a logic level P fet as often there is transistor driving the mosfet.

Much better to use a cheap Darlington transistor then. You are commenting using your Facebook account. However I advise you against building that yourself as they are rather cheap if you just buy them: Is there any logic mosfet capable to drive 25 Amperes? Should you however be stuck ird530a a FET like the IRF that really needs a high voltage to switch efficiently then use the following circuit: So no R1 and T1 from your diagram link?
They indeed can stand almost 7A, but only when sufficiently on or off. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: What i like you eatasheet do first is to detach the pic-circuit and just put 5 Volt on the entrance of yr FET circuit, via say that ohm resistor, and see if then your lamp behaves the same.
My hairs are starting to turn gray: Backyard controller design Eric’s Arcana and RiderX. Every time I tried with new IRF, but any of them worked only for first time. You are commenting using your WordPress. Was that the same as for the mosfet?
How can I find the current in the LED? Do you have any idea why is the mosfet not working properly and letting the 12v works on the led strip?
This is for direct transfer so it is already mirrorred the right way. Some people however have trouble reading a datasheet or do not know what to look for and in that case foing with TTL level FETs is a safe option.
Sorry no T2 and R1. R1 is just there to limit the current through the gat, coming from a microcontroller pin. Do you have the break out board in the drain or the source?
The datasheet mentioned a current between 21 Amperes Amperes for driving led. I just touched the gate pin to turn motor on. Notify me of new posts via email.
Should I try to use a BC for exemple to turn on the Mosfet like the schematic 3 and in this case when I put my output high the Mosfet is off, so I should put it Low to turn on my load, is it?
The IRF can obviously take 4 amps, but sadly it expects a higher voltage on its gate than the most microcontrollers can deliver i presume you will use a microcontroller. And a step up boost converter to supply the 5.
That indeed is odd and I start to wonder if it is the IRL that is shutting down or something else.
