Choosing the right transistor for switching application
I need to create module that can switch between loads.
There are two input banks, each bank will take about 30V max.
For each bank I must have TTL outputs for Voltage and current measurements. In the requirements I have specified that there should only be one voltage feedback and one current feedback, and an input switch to switch between banks.
I have the basic idea in my head.
But I'm somewhat limited in my experience with Mosfets, BJTs and transistors as switches in general. I've used them for school projects but I never actually selected them I was either given them or my team mates and I would use what was available from scrap electronics etc and looked up their datasheets. I have built robots and such this way. But this time I need to actually do it properly and intentionally.
Can I get a push in the right direction as to which kind of transistor I should use and how to select it?
I think I need Power Mosfets, but what kind?
You mention using a transistor. Do you not want to use a mechanical switch?
