The invention of MOSFET Transistors has revolutionised the semiconductor industry. This is due to its compact miniaturisated and mass-produced form factor. This has enabled the creation of high-density ICs such as memory chips and microprocessors. The MOSFET is considered the “workhorse” of the electronics industry.
With next to no input current a MOSFET can control a large load current.
So to summarise, they have faster-switching speeds, a reduced footprint, consume significantly less power, and allow much higher density, compared to BJTs. MOSFETs are also cheaper and have relatively simple production.
Proto-PIC stocks a range of MOSFET transistors in various forms to suit your project.
