i want to run a 12 volt 2amp led strip tape off of it for dimming. i noticed it got a little hot after a few minutes.
i used an irf520 because the getting started with arduino book showed it for driving things such as small motors. the wiring is my arduino pin connected to pin 1 of the mosfet, led strip ground connected to pin 2, ground connected to pin 3, and i'm not sure why but according to the book, a diode connected across the main 12volt power to mosfet pin 2.
What would be a good mosfet to use instead with less of a power drop? i do not know how to make much sense of mosfet data sheets
