I want to build a simple circuit that will involve using the Arduino to switch power on/off to a strip of LED lights powered by 32V DC supply from the mains via a digital out and an IR3205 n channel MOSFET.
I see Vdss is 55V, which suggests to me that using this MOSFET’s gate driven from the Arduino to switch 32V DC is within its limits. However, I also read somewhere recently that one should always use a MOSFET that is rated at twice the Vs i.e. in this case, 64V.
Is this the case? Or am I safe to use my IR3205 in this circuit?
