MOSFETs are the go-to technology for controlling large loads from a microcontroller. While a directly driven MOSFET is fine for low power and/or low frequency PWM and for simple switching, driving the gate becomes more troublesome when using large MOSFETs with high-speed PWM. The gate of a MOSFET acts like a capacitor electrically, with the state of the transistor depending on the voltage on the gate. This has two consequences relevant to typical light electronics.
Where these issues are a problem, there's a demand for a way to apply a brief high current pulse to the gate of a MOSFET - this is known as a gate driver. These boards mount an FL3100A gate driver, which can provide up to 2.5A to the gate of the MOSFET, with rise/fall times on the order of 10nS, enabling high speed PWM of large loads. The FL1000A has a logic threshold of around 1.6v (max for high 2V, min for low 0.8V), though it requires at least 4.5v for proper operation and will apply the full operating voltage to the gate with even a low voltage signal. It provides two control pins, and only when In is high, and Dim is low will the MOSFET be turned on.
|In||Non-inverting control||If IN is LOW, FET is off|
|Dim||Inverting control||If DIM is HIGH, FET is off|
This is available assembled with a MOSFET (currently the DMTH8012, up to 80Vgs, up 50A with additional cooling is the only option - other MOSFETs may be added based on customer demand) mounted on the other side, or you can get it without the MOSFET and add the N-channel MOSFET FET of your choice.
Screw terminals are available (installed) for a small additional fee.

International orders have been suffering long delays due to COVID-19 - please check your country at https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/ and make sure that I can ship to you, and that you are okay with any delays. There may be additional information available from your national postal service. Some customers have reported packages being delayed in transit by over a month. We cannot offer any sort of guarantees regarding international shipments at this time; we apologize for the inconvenience, and are looking into shipping internationally through UPS.
Please be sure that the address given to Tindie is accurate, and includes your street name and number - company name is only required if shipping to a commercial address. International orders require a valid phone number.
Domestic packages that go more than 1 week without a tracking update will be presumed lost in the mail and refunded or reshipped as buyer prefers. Any international packages can be delayed in customs without warning for 2 weeks or more. After 1 month without a tracking event (2 months to South and Central America - insane delays in those nations are commonplace), we will reship or refund a missing order (as you prefer). COVID-19 update: Some countries have stopped processing incoming international mail entirely -we will cancel orders to countries which we know are not processing international mail at all. This may also cause longer than usual shipping times - we are not responsible for such delays.
We do not open inquiries through the postal service - experience has shown this to be futile.
We ship all orders via USPS. UPS will be added as an option in the near future, I hope. We do all shipping through Stamps.com, and they offer me UPS, but all addresses are rejected as invalid, and I have emailed support numerous times and have had zero response. So at present, we cannot entertain requests to ship through other carriers.
