More Info +- Less Info

The MOSFET (metal -oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor) is a near-ideal three-terminal component used for linear and switching applications. After a brief overview of the MOSFET's internal structure and operation, this course looks at critical and relevant device parameters to consider when using MOSFETs in their most common switching applications, such basic AC-line control, power-supply design, and motor control (via H-bridge and other topologies).

Among the parameters explored are on-resistance, switching time, and thermal performance. The course will also explore important associated issues such as the MOSFET driver and driver requirements (including isolated versus non-isolated drive), circuit protection, packaging, and paralleling MOSFETs, plus design issues and potential problems to take into aware of.

Bill Schweber has done an excellent job of presenting switching MOSFET basics. He touches briefly on related topics but, most of the presentation focuses on MOSFET fundamentals, key parameters, and basic switching applications.

Hi, I really like this course and came back for a review but it seems the file has been removed. :-( Is there an alternate website to view this course? Please, upload this course again for the sake of enlightening a newbie like me.
