honestly I'm drawing a blank. I am trying to turn on and off a load with a P-CH MOSFET. I used generic resistor values just to be clear.
Now, in this example the VGS will clearly never go to 0. It just can't, unless I try to drive the gate with the 24V source.
Is there any way to turn off this PFET without using a second transistor? Specifically, I was using an N-CH MOSFET to "pull up" to 24V like in this second example.
Is there any advantage to doing it this way? Am I forgetting something about P-CH FETS? Is there a better way to do this? More specifically, is there an easier way to do a load switch that is connected to ground, and the switch connects power?
Thanks :) I appreciate any advice, app note links, etc.
