N-Channel MOSFET 55V 30A

This is a common MOSFET with very low on-resistance and a control voltage (aka 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.

  • FET Type: N-Channel
  • Technology: MOSFET (Metal Oxide)
  • Drain to Source Voltage (Vdss): 55V
  • Current - Continuous Drain (Id) @ 25°C: 30A (Tc)
  • Drive Voltage (Max Rds On, Min Rds On): 4V, 10V
  • Rds On (Max) @ Id, Vgs: 35mOhm @ 16A, 10V
  • Vgs(th) (Max) @ Id: 2V @ 250µA
  • Gate Charge (Qg) (Max) @ Vgs: 25 nC @ 5 V
  • Vgs (Max): ±16V
  • Input Capacitance (Ciss) (Max) @ Vds: 880 pF @ 25 V
  • Power Dissipation (Max): 68W (Tc)
  • Operating Temperature: -55°C ~ 175°C (TJ)
