Following up from Episode #10 on BJTs, this episode is focused on introducing MOSFETs. It is the longest video we’ve done yet, coming in just over 7 and a half minutes.
There is a basic overview of how MOSFETs work, compared to a BJT. And something that is really important to consider: how hot is it going to get? So we go through how to calculate power dissipation and if you need a heat sink.
