MOSFET (Enhancement-Type)

Although depletion type and enhancement type MOSFETs look similar with their internal structures and functional mode, their characteristics may be quite different. The main difference being the drain current which depends on a specific level of gate-to-source voltage for the cut off action. Precisely, for an n-channel enhancement-type MOSFET a positive gate/source voltage effects its … Read moreMOSFET (Enhancement-Type)

Capacitor Inductor Calculations

Inductors can be imagined as the opposite of capacitors. The main difference between a capacitor and an inductor is that a capacitor carries a protective dielectric between its plates, which inhibits the conduction of current across its terminals. Here it acts like an open circuit. On the other hand the inductance of an inductor is … Read moreCapacitor Inductor Calculations

High Current Zener Diode Datasheet, Application Circuit

Zener diodes that are normally available are mostly 1/4 watt or 1/2 watt types. And it is quite valid since the basic function of zener is to create stabilized reference voltage. Zener diodes are not designed for current regulation directly. However, for some applications where shunting excess voltage and current is necessary a high current … Read moreHigh Current Zener Diode Datasheet, Application Circuit
