I am a rookie in this field. So please be gentle.
I am trying to turn ON / OFF (only ON / OFF) 12V LED Strip using arduino (and not even at high speed - ON/OFF transition after 15 seconds).
I did my homework and searched forums here and found out that I need a logic level mosef which has
1: Max gate threshold voltage (under 5V)
2: Low Rds (ON)
3: ID greater than my needs for LED strip.
I think that 2203 is better than 3205 because it has lower resistance but it is double the price and i need 40 pieces and I am on very small budget (it is home project)
Therefore I am asking you guys here to please help me and tell me if it is ok that i can order 3205?
It is a lot of money for me for my home project and I dont want to order wrong item.
In “Gate Threshold Voltage” it says MAX 4V. It concerns me. Does it mean that 5V of arduino will destroy it.
I know for someone who knows this stuff it is a simple answer. But please help me as I am a lot concerned.
