And that 22k needs to be 1k to lower switching losses. The easiest way is a logic N-channel mosfet, and switch the low side of the load.

The trace is on a PCB and very short, with only a pull down resistor on the gate:.

It is irr530 specified for 5V. It’s very useful for connecting FETs in parallel, since if one is hogging the current, irff530 resistance will rise and it will draw less current, allowing equal current sharing without too much fuss on your part.

More parts and slower switching. The trace is on a PCB and very short, with only a pull down resistor on the gate: Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Just trying to get a circuit working on 12v and leds before I move up to the resistance wire and 48v.

IRF530, SiHF530 product information

Wawa on Apr 08, Wawa Shannon Member Posts: As usual, Mr George demands every little bit documented and explained by the books theories moafet understand whats going on. I would like to use the 2n to push 12v to the irf50 so it fully turns on and off. Also I assume both the mosfet and transistor here are both n type?


That is a great question TonyStewart. Drive-by” that’s somebody else. For 6A and without heatsink, aim for 15 mOhms or lower.


I also can make a circuit with just a irf driving some leds on 12v idf530 it also works great. WhatRoughBeast 49k 2 28 Yeah that will work. If your circuit is in an aluminium case this can also be your heatsink.

Thanks Pancake plus karma I got it to work I think I confused gain drain and source on the mosfet like a newb. Post as a guest Name. You realise the logic mosfet you’re getting does not need a driver transistor.

At mksfet volts gate voltage, you can only “expect” 3 to 4 amps of current, and you want 6, so this also should give you warning. There are plenty of such FETs.

It just kept the lights on no matter what.

Vishay – MOSFETs – IRF, SiHF – Power MOSFET

How can you choose one to keep cool? Threshold voltage mlsfet the Vgs at which is begins to conduct just a little bit, you need way more to have good switching. While others have adequately answered the question, I thought I’d approach it from another perspective, in order to mosfey you some insight as to how to read data sheets.

Mosfdt, it’s true that 4 volts is worst-case, and you are surely doing better than this, but it’s the heart of the problem. Trying to drive a irf mosfet with a 2n transistor. And is “on” when the Arduino is off, and could be “on” during bootup.


This deals with “normal” behavior, rather than worst-case. This irv530 the temperature to stabilize, rather than running away. Can post a schematic if you want. If you can mount it bare can you mount multiple irf5x0 on the same heatsink bare?

Finally, look at figure 4, Rds vs temperature, and notice how it rises. And the base drive for Q1 is pretty marginal – I doubt you’ll get hard saturation. I am above the threshold voltage of 4V, so I assume the FET is not in a linear state, and the power dissipation according to Rds on is only 0. IRF getting very hot Ask Question. I am thinking the problem arises because I am sinking the negative side of the leds through the transistor instead of putting power out of the transistor should I be using a p chanel transistor to feed the mosfet its 12v to turn on?

When I set the pin to high, the mosfet gets very hot.
