Abstract

Recant advancements in MOSFET technology have made high current semi-conductor switches an attractive alternative to the existing mechanical and electro-mechanical devices. The extremely low drain-to-source resist- ance of the MOSFET device translates into reduced loss in the switching device thereby providing a wider range of circuit applications.
