Designing in MOSFETs for safe and reliable gate-drive operation

The MOSFET gate-source threshold voltage (VGS-th) and maximum gate-source voltage(VGS-max) are key parameters that are critical to the reliable operation of MOSFETs. The threshold voltage represents the voltage at which the MOSFET starts to turn on, whilst the maximum gate-source...
