I am working on an ultrasonic mist maker for my school project but I can't seem to make the piezoelectric disc work and the MOSFET keeps burning up.
Can s.eone help me figure out what's wrong?
Here is the schematic (credit goes to greatscottlab on youtube.)
While we're at it I was wondering what would be the better power source for the circuit, a 12V DC power source or a 12V battery.
Update : I have retried the circuit the 15V is now connected at the 8-pin and no components get burned up (yay!!) but I still can't get the piezoelectric disc working. Any ideas why?
P.S. I used the 12V DC power source and I'm building it on a bread board because I do not have the necessary appliances such as solder and PCBs.
