I am trying to use an IRLB3034 with an Arduino even though it is not a logic level MOSFET. I am planning on using an LM2937 12v regulator like the schematic below:
The connection going off the page goes to an Arduino digital pin pulled down with a 10k resistor. I assumed this would work but wanted to check. As a side note, if anyone could recommend a similar MOSFET that could handle 200a and 40v (in TH) that would be great. (Only if such thing excists or is readily available)
EDIT: I have not made it clear what I am planning on using this for so I will now. It is to drive an airsoft motor and I want to use the LM2937 because I didn't think I could turn the mosfet on and off with the arduinos 5v - because the IRLB3034 isn't a logic level mosfet - so that is the reason I added the 12v regulator.
EDIT (Sorry for the previous incorrect name)
EDIT: Unfortunately, I have made a mistake, the current is not 200 amps, it is infact 30-40 amps. I don't know how I made this mistake but I think it will be helpful for people trying to follow along. I am currently trying to use busbars/6awg copper wire to carry the high-ish current around. (Only 40 amps now though)
EDIT: This question is different because it is asking how to convert 5v to 12v to run a mosfet rather then how to use a mosfet with an arduino in the best way like the other post. The accepted answer on this post also answers the other question though.
