Thread: 250mW LASER stuck on
Yep, a 20 ohm trim pot would generate a bit of current with 12V across it!
Irving is right, a positive gate relative to source voltage turns the thing on (n-channel, p-channel moshfestch. schmoshfesh) But the test I poropsed is still valid, as you turn the wiper in the direction towards 0V with the pot wiper, eventually the FET should turn off (got to establish if it's possible to turn your particular fet off & at what voltage)
Cheers Irving ...I'll get me coat!
