I am working on an Arduino project where am controlling a motor through one of the Arduino I/O pins. The motor has nothing special just a regular 3-5V motor. In my circuit am using a diode and a N-Channel MOSFET that has low Rds, The diode is 1N4001 and MOSFET is RFP30N06LE. Everything works! so far so good.
Now am making a PCB of my circuit and i don't want to use these THT components i would like to use SMT components/alternatives. To replace the 1N4001 diode i found S1-A and to replace the MOSFET i found PMV15UNEAR.
My question is simply, are the replacement components similar enough to control my 3-5V motor like how i had it working on the breadboard setup? if not do you know of any better choices.
