the graph is not very accurate (or is accurate without the heat sink)
You don't want any gate resistor, you want it to switch as fast as possible to limit losses
I have been safely switching 30A at 12V, and that is also outside the dotted line for DC. The thing is the mosfet does not even get warm (maybe because I have a heat sink on it). This leads me to believe that the graph is not very accurate (or is accurate without the heat sink). Increasing the number of mosfets is certainly an improvement but I am still not sure if that is really needed. This mosfet has impressive characteristics and putting 2 in parallel might be overkill for this application. My question is about the driver. What value of gate resistor do I need for a period of 300ms (again I am NOT PWMing the Mosfet). Essentially the mosfet is acting as a switch that is only on for a period of 300ms
However I am afraid that if I dont put any gate resistor, this thing would blow up too. Share your thoughts.
