MOSFET and BJT Comparison

Two of the most common three terminal semiconductor nowadays are MOSFET and BJT. MOSFET is metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor. It is a variant of FET. BJT on the other hand is bipolar junction transistor. It is worth to discuss MOSFET and BJT comparison to understand which part to use. Read below comparisons. 1. Application of MOSFET and BJT

How to Drive a Relay with a MOSFET

It is very common application to drive a relay with a MOSFET. From household applications to automotive are using this circuit. There are some aspects to consider like the stress on the MOSFET, the level of driving voltage to guarantee MOSFET saturation, the level of the actual voltage applied to the relay coil if enough to meet the requirement and

Quasi Resonant Flyback Transformer Saturation Analysis

One of the very important aspect to look at in dealing with quasi resonant flyback transformer is the saturation. A quasi-resonant flyback transformer is not actually a transformer that we usually know. A transformer will transfer energy from the primary to the secondary at real time. However, the flyback converter will store energy on the primary and then transfer that energy to the secondary somehow. This action makes a flyback transformer prone to saturation if not properly been designed.
