I'm looking to use a MOSFET to switch on/off an array of LEDs that can draw up to about 1.6A (16 LEDs at 100mA each). I've used basic transistors before and have had good times with the ole TIP120, but I'd like to find a SMD package for a PCB I'm working on.
I'm struggling with some of the terms that are used in MOSFETs, and how to pick just the right parameters that I need. In particular, if I want to find a MOSFET that is controllable with 5V logic, what field should I be looking at in Digikey? Vgs(th) max? What does that mean?
I think I've sourced a suitable MOSFET, but I'm wondering if there is something that I missed: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/DMN3404L-7/DMN3404LDICT-ND/2052805
