“How can we make a MOSFET that can operate at lower voltages?”

 

MOSFETS are some of the most useful appliances in electronic circuits. It’s ability to act like a turn a circuit on or off just through a voltage spike has been a paradigm shift in electronics. However, many of these MOSFETs might require a voltage of around 10 V to operate, and sometimes we don’t have the ability to generate that amount (such as working with a microcontroller). So how can we use our engineering mindset to solve this problem? Well, what if we were to build a special MOSFET that can work under lower voltage levels? It turns out that these have been invented, and are called Logic Level MOSFETs.
