so why is this:
different than this:
So I got a mosfet transistor and I was playing around with it and found the first schematic online. In my particular application, it would be impractical to run Vcc->load->Drain as opposed to Vcc->drain->source->load-gnd.
I tried switching the resistor and LED in the schematic to the second schematic and it was very dim. Seems backwards to me. Wouldnt the drain be the output of the mosfet?
