Can somebody be so kind and elaborate on the difference between n and p ch Mosfets from the point of view of the thread's aim?
Hi,Note this only for Enhancement Mode MOSFETs, which I think is the majority of most MOSFETs we will encounter with Arduino control.Tom..
I'm testing a mosfet and I want to see what values I get when I open the gate. So I'm using a Nano to set pin D5 high to open the gate.So when 5v is applied to the gate, I should get a voltage reading across D and Source, right?1. But I need to put a voltage on the drain pin as well, right?2. And I also need to ground my source, correct?
OK so I got what I wanted. It turns out the d5 pin was only putting out 4.74V so the gate wasn't opening properly. I recharged the lipo and now it's getting enough to open the gate.
