I am designing a circuit to switch off the charge current to a battery when the voltage rises above a certain level. Maximum current is 2.3 Amps from a solar panel.
I am using an opto-coupled Omron device (GV3M-41AY, 40V, 2A) as the switch, but it is limited to 2A, so I intend using two in parallel. Can I drive both devices through the one gate-drive resistor?
This thread, Parallel MOSFETs, suggests that separate gate-drive resistors should be used, but does that apply for opto-coupled MOSFETs?
