Latest Updated:02/01/2008

Question:

How are VDSS and VGSS of power MOSFETs defined?

Answer:

VDSS is the maximum voltage that can be applied between the drain and source while the gate and source are short-circuited.



VGSS is the maximum voltage that can be applied between the gate and source while the drain and source are short-circuited.
