The Great Search: Replacement for AON7401 8-DFN Power P-Channel FET #TheGreatSearch @DigiKey
We use the AON7401 in a LOT of our designs, it’s a high-current power P-FET that we use for polarity-verification / voltage-switching. For example, in our RGB Matrix FeatherWing, it’s used to make sure we have a positive voltage going from the DC jack to the RGB Matrix.
Sadly this exact part is discontinued. Let’s try to find a drop-in replacement with as-good-or-better specifications! (video)
