A Hack to Boost the Gate Voltage of a PWM Driven MOSFET

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

...and why it is almost certainly not the right answer to the problem of having a logic level signal and a non-logic level FET. Mark VandeWettering posted an entry concerning the problem of driving an IRF510 MOSFET from a microcontroller running at 3 volts. The basic problem is that the threshold voltage of the IRF510 […]
