SparkFun MOSFET Power Control Kit (Assembled)

This is an assembled version of the SparkFun MOSFET Power Control Kit, a breakout PTH soldering kit for for the RFP30N06LE N-Channel MOSFET. This kit comes pre-assembled with everything already soldered onto the PCB. If you are looking for a little more control over projects that require a little more power than normal but need a better way than your breadboard, this kit is perfect for you.

This kit is comprised of a SparkFun MOSFET Power Control PCB, two screw terminals (one 2-pin and one 3-pin), a 10k resistor, and a single RFP30N06LE MOSFET. What we really like about this particular MOSFET is that it's very common and offers very low on-resistance with a control (gate) voltage that is compatible with any 3-5V microcontroller or mechanical switch. This allows you to control high-power devices with very low-power control mechanisms.

Note: While the MOSFET is rated to 60V 30A, the circuit board traces are only rated to 3.5A.

  • Pre-soldered and fully assembled!
  • Rated: 60V, 30A (PCB only rated for 3.5A)
  • 2kV ESD Protected
  • Temperature Compensating PSPICE Model
  • Peak Current vs Pulse Width Curve

Core Skill: DIY

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

1 DIY

Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.
See all skill levels


Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

    I wouldn't mind playing with a p-channel version of the same. Not everything can be done with a low side switch...

    No diode on the device side? Won’t this cause an issue when powering motors or fans etc (from back-driving)?
