P-Channel Power MOSFET
P-channel power MOSFETs reducing design complexity in medium and low power applications
A P-channel MOSFET uses hole flow as the charge carrier, which has less mobility than the electron flow used in N-channel MOSFETs. In functional terms, the main difference is that P-channel MOSFETs require a negative voltage from the gate to the source (VGS) to turn on (as opposed to an N-channel MOSFET, which requires a positive VGS voltage). This makes P-channel MOSFETs the ideal choice for high-side switches. The simplicity of the design is beneficial for low-voltage drives applications and non-isolated POLs, where space is limited. One of the great advantages of the P-channel MOSFET characteristics is the simplified gate driving technique that often reduces overall cost.
