Hello, i intend to buy a few of these little guys from china or ebay, as it takes like 2-3 months to reach my country i first buy them and after i bought i learn about them. Could someone point me to some nice pieces of hardware? Oooh and please TO-220 case, breadboard friendly.

Yes, the logic ones, that are fully on at only 5v. N channel enhancement, and it must be from ebay or aliexpress, that's why i need the name of the mosfet. I live in brazil.

Not if you mean the plastic boards with holes to plug things into. They don't fit TO-220 leads because they are too fat. You will have to solder a bit of wire to each lead in order to get them to plug in without damaging the practice board.

OK, then I'd look into Digikey and Mouser, and see if I found the part on their site. If so, I'd go to eBay or Aliexpress, and look for the same part.

And @#12 has a valid point. If you have a thight new breadboard, you'll struggle, but if the board is well used and loose, then it might work. You might need a heatsink.

Mine does, or it's already damaged :eek:, but nevertheless, that would suitable for my purposes. I have three breadboards, two of them are so tight, but one is like "made" for these packages.

I'm asking here because i get really lost through all that data. And you guys had more experience than me, so it's like asking a person the best route to a place.

There are thousands of N-ch mosfets, even in the Logic Level type. We can guess that your voltage is less than 30V and the current in a breadboard is under 2 amps, but it would be nice to hear from you about that.

Oh sorry, i didn't knew that. Yes current is less than 2 amps and voltage is under 12v. I need one that is completelly on with 5v, but now i feel that my question envolves many variables.

The trick to plugging TO-220 into a solderless breadboard is to give the leads a quarter twist before plugging them in.


Edit: Oops, again... finger was too fast and too clumsy-- meant quarter not half.

I just push harder. I usually keep them on one end of the board reserved for such abuse.

Hmm, that's a good point to start, thanks a lot @#12 .

My breadboards usually fit almost everything, that's not a big deal for me. But, yes, sometimes i pick my pliers( i ain't sure thats the word for what i'm looking for) and pinch the pins, weakly.
