These aren't MOSFETs, these are MONSTER FETs. An extra beefy version of my other MOSFET breakout board - All of these fets are rated for 100A continuous drain current as long as you can keep them cool. The board is designed such that you can fit heatsinks on without blocking the installation of screw terminals, if you need it. Unlike the previous incarnation of this board, this board should be able to handle the full 100A (though the FETs will need both heatsinks and a fan if you are handling such heavy loads continuously) - we have measured the resistance between the holes for the terminal strip and the drain or source of the FETs as 0.6 milliohms.
If you need a larger quantity of a version than I have in stock, send me a message and I can have them assembled within a few days; the limited stock is to make sure I don't make piles of an unpopular version, leaving me without parts to build more of a popular version.
This board is manufactured on 2oz copper, with wide traces on both sides to carry both current and to help dissipate heat from the MOSFETs. The board can accept screw terminals on either 0.2" pitch pins - the small green screw terminals readily available from Chinese suppliers, or larger screw terminals on 9.5mm pitch pins. Note that even the larger screw terminals are only available rated up to 40A. Heavier loads require soldering a suitable wire directly onto the board; large exposed pads are provided for that purpose. There are two sets of mounting holes on the top - the one on the tabs (which can be broken off to fit into tight spaces) are for when large screw terminals are used, as they would cover up the other set of mounting holes.
Overall board dimensions are 2" x 2" with the mounting tabs, 2" x 1.75" with them removed.
For the most demanding use cases, we offer a version with a pair of NCP81071B gate drivers. These are capable of delivering a brief pulse of surprisingly high current into the gate to rapidly switch the MOSFET on or off, in response to a low voltage input signal: 2.2v or higher, and these will treat it as a HIGH and apply the full supply voltage to the gate of the FET, below 0.8V they will treat as a LOW and ground the gate. This means that you can control the high-voltage versions with 2.5V logic. These require at least 5V on the V+ pin; they can take a voltage as high as 20V without damage (Max. 10V should be supplied to V+ with BSC026N02). The voltage supplied at V+ is the voltage applied to the gate, so with the higher voltage version, providing 10V on V+ will allow for lower on-state resistance (with the BSC026N02, the minimum 5V needed by the driver itself is already high enough that the MOSFET is completely on, with maximum resistance of 2.6 milliohms - your wires will likely have more resistance).
Where the required current exceeds the specified maximum continuous current without additional cooling, or under heavy loads while PWM'ing the gate at very high frequencies, heatsinks can be used. For almost all loads, you do not need them, though. We offer optional heatsinks; if you choose for us to install them, they will be attached with thermal epoxy. This is done to order, and will add 1-2 days to order processing to allow the epoxy to set.
When driving an inductive load (motors, solenoids - anything where there's a coil of wire and this is controlling the current through it), you MUST connect a diode sized to be able to carry the full load of the device between the terminals of the load, with the band towards the positive side (so it normally will not conduct. When the switch is turned off, the current wants to keep flowing, and if you do not include that diode to clamp it, a brief voltage spike up to several times the supply voltage will be generated; this is great at blowing MOSFETs. These boards do not have any clamping diodes on the board, as they should be located as close to the load as possible.
Datasheet: BSC026N02 Rds: 3.5~4.3 mOhm @ 2.5 Vgs, 2.1~2.6 @ 4.5Vgs Vds: 20V max Current: Up to 100A continuous with added cooling, 25A max w/out.
Datasheet: BSC082N10LS Rds: 8.2~11 mOhm @ 4.5 Vgs, 6.8~8.2 @ 10Vgs Vds: 100V max
Current: Up to 100A continuous with added cooling, 14A max w/out. Note: The BSC082N10LS is marked as "not for new designs" indicating that the manufacturer intends to discontinue it - the best substitute I have found is the DMT10H010LPS, which is not quite as good. I will continue offering these as long as I am able to get them.
Datasheet: DMT10H010LPS Rds: 10~20 mOhm @ 4.5 Vgs, 6.9~8.3 @ 10Vgs Vds: 100V max
Current: Up to 98A continuous with added cooling, 9.4A max w/out.

United States Postal Service: First Class Tracked (recommended, cheaper than economy for 5+ items)
United States Postal Service: Priority Mail - Flat rate (fastest, tracked)
Domestic shipping via USPS Priority Mail - USPS advertises 1~3 day shipping time within the continental United States. This is a flat rate for any quantity of items - shipping is via a USPS small flat rate box (unless you place a massive order that needs a larger box; I am happy to cover the added shipping fee for an order of that size!)
United States Postal Service: Priority Mail Express
The absolute fastest domestic service offered by the postal service. This is typically one day faster than Priority; but as you can see, that is a very expensive day. Orders placed via this shipping method will be given top priority in handling.
