I am planning to light some RGB LED-Strips with a TLC5940 and a MOSFET, because the strips are rated with 12V (3 LEDs in series with a resistor).
Is the circuit in the attachment ok for this? The thing I am not sure about is if there must be a pull-up or down resistor on the Gate… Is there an additional current limiting transistor needed for the Gate or is this done by the TLC?
And would it be OK if I use a IRLIZ 34N? I know they are a bit overkill but I can get some from a friend, so I would not have to buy them…
