The Great Search: P-Channel MOSFET in a Small SMT Package #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey @DigiKey @adafruit
On this week’s The Great Search (video), we’re looking for a P-Channel MOSFET in a small SMT package to replace the classic SOT-23 one we use for all our Feathers.
In this case, we’re making a very compact board, so we need a smaller package! We’ve traditionally used the DMG2305 or DMG3415 as a high-current 3 or 4 Amp, 20V+, low 1Vgth, and low RdsOn of 50mOhm or less. Thankfully there’s quite a few options on Digi-Key, let’s look and compare what is available.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
