Material Detail



MOSFETs are not new. In fact, production devices were first available in the mid-1960s. Today they are the most widely used transistor type in electronic circuits. While MOSFETs are covered in all electronic technology textbooks and solid state courses in community colleges, they are not given the emphasis their leadership in the industry represents. Most texts and courses continue to stress coverage of bipolar junction transistors (BJTs). While BJTs are still used, their application has declined in favor of MOSFETs. Textbooks today provide only an introduction to MOSFET operation and very little about the actual circuits in which they are used. This module is designed to supplement and update course and textbook coverage to provide the student with a contemporary look at modern MOSFET circuits and applications.
