I use a MOSFET in my project, and I don't know what model of MOSFET I need. I do have a list of specs, but I don't know what they would be called on the datasheet.
I need some help translating my list of required specs into something I can put into an interactive search on an electronics store website.
- Switching voltage (The voltage at which the MOSFET lets current flow)
- Maximum current it can pass from the source to the drain. (How many Amps can I run through it)
- Maximum voltage it can hold back when the gate has no current.(How much voltage can it hold back when not switched 'on')
- Gate capacitance (No idea)
Or, would I be able to just use a switching transistor? I feel like it would simplify things if I could. I am using this circuit:
