Currently, I am using a function generator to drive MOSFET with a 5V square wave. Now I need to rise frequency up to 14 MHz for educational purposes. Before I post an order for specific IC, I want to consult with more experienced people. This is my first time using a mos driver.
So, I need to drive only one fet. I found this driver
The datasheet states: Wide Input Supply Voltage Operating Range: -4.5V to 18V.
But later it reads, in Absolute Maximum Ratings: Input Voltage –5V to VDD + 0.3V So wich is it,? As input, I consider a signal from a function generator, correct?
Also, on pin 1 and 8 is Vdd. I am guessing pin1 is for powering a chip and pin 8 for driving MOSFET. Correct me if I am wrong.
Matched Rise and Fall Times: 25 ns. Does it mean operating frequency of 50ns which is 20MHz?
Last question, if I feed input with 5V does the output equals input 5V or Vdd from pin8?
