A scope trace would help, or an indication of what device you’re representing with that symbol. A crucial factor in how R5 operates is determined by what else is connected to it and the base of Q1. Additionally a few Ohm damping resistor inserted just into mosfet’s gate terminal should prevent some ringing caused by capacitance and wire inductance. Definatly a requirement of the next itteration I think. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. However, there is a detail which got stuck in my mind.

At the other end, its usually easy enough to drive GATE the extra tootem further than what you want to make sure shows up on the gate of Q3. It would be the top configuration that I found elsewhere And I’m wondering it would be possible not to use driving ICs, to have more control over functionality, less complexity, less cost.

We’ll all learn from it. Answer edited to address comments.
Is it supposed to look like this? The current gain is a good thing because in order to charge the gate capacitance of the FET in a short period of time you need high peak currents: Emitter fotem may fail to deliver cutoff voltage to it due to Vbe.

Sign up using Facebook. If it’s at the load then your barking up the wrong tree.

Posted by jdraughn in forum: Your double emitter follower therefore has a 2 junction ttoem about 1. As a matter of fact, the configuration shown here, even if complicated with emitter and collector resistors, is a well-known source of distortion when used in audio amplifiers, because it has a “dead zone” around zero.

It does the job with zero tuning and a having lower probablity to behave unthinkably during operation voltage transitions. Darlington Pairs have the gain of both transistors multiplied. I just reread the wikipedia entry on BJT comon colector emitter follower. They have a gate, a source which is usually the currents exit, go figureand a drain again, opposite the name.
Why do you even need a driver circut? And isn’t this a general problem, even for an ordinary SPST power switch?
Saturation is no issue here. Post as a guest Name. Your second version has a shortcut. That means when the right side of R2 is in the range of 5. How wrong can you be with just the one head?
I’ve experimented with different arrangements, with resistors and capacitors. Autistic 7, 2 15 They also have polarities, a N channel and a P channel, but for technical reasons the N channel tends to work better.

Do you have it mounted on a heat sink?
