    Hi everyone.

    I am mostly new to electronics and I have a question on Mosfet specifications. I was looking at a N channel Mosfet logic switch and ran into this confusing (to me) specification. It listed the DSon (Drain-Source on-state-resistance) as 148 Mohms with Vgs=5V; Id = 5A
    MY question is how can this Mosfet pass 5A through the Drain-Source circuit with the resistance being 148MOhms?

    Anyone?

    Thanks

    That's most likely 148 mOhms, for milli-ohms.

    Thank you!.. Yes this makes sense. I did not notice the lowercase m used in 'mill'.
    Boy, if not for Forums I would be lost.
