Practical Aspects of Using PowerMOS Transistors to Drive Inductive Loads

  • Published 2002
Many of the more recent applications of PowerMOS transistors, particularly low voltage devices, have been as solenoid drivers. In this type of application the device is simply used as a switch to turn the current through a solenoid, relay or other inductive load on and off (Figure 1). Since the dissipation is low, a very small or no heat sink will be… CONTINUE READING
