  • Someone else might want to check this, but here's how I understand it. The drain (D) of the FET is connected to 5v, and the source (S) is connected to the heater input of the sensor. The PWM pin is then connected to the gate (G) of the FET. By setting the PWM widths as shown below, the voltage at S on the FET with switch between 1.4v and 5v. You essentially use the FET as a switch, the advantage being you don't pull large amounts of current out of the microcontroller, potentially damaging it.

  • Is it just me or have all the pictures disappeared?

No public wish lists :(
