Solid State DC Switching using Mosfet-Arduino nano dc-ssr shield

The simple DC switching possible with this MOSFET board, the board is made in form of Arduino Nano shield, the board can be used to drive inductive load as well as resistive load, possible application for the shield are LED dimmer, DC Motor speed controller, DC load ON/OFF, solenoid driver, and lamp dimmer. D2 provided for back EMF protection which helps to use an inductive load like DC motor or solenoid. The directly seats on top of Arduino Nano, Screw terminal provided to connect the load and Dc supply. This N-Channel MOSFET has been produced using a proprietary PowerTrench® technology to deliver low RDS(on) and optimized BVDSS capability to offer superior performance benefit in the application. FDD8876 MOSFET can drive a high current load, MBRS340 diode protects from back EMF.

About MBRS340 Diode

The Schottky Rectifier employs the Schottky Barrier principle in a large area metal-to-silicon power diode. The Schottky Rectifier’s state-of-the-art geometry features epitaxial construction with oxide passivation and metal overlay contact. It is ideally suited for low voltage, high-frequency rectification, or as freewheeling and polarity protection diodes in surface mount applications where compact size and weight are critical to the system.

  • Small Compact Surface Mountable Package with J-Bend Leads
  • Rectangular Package for Automated Handling
  • Highly Stable Oxide Passivated Junction
  • Excellent Ability to Withstand Reverse Avalanche Energy Transients
  • Guarding for Stress Protection
