MOSFET N- and P-channel

“MOSFET or simply FET (MOS = metal-oxide semiconductor and FET = field effect transistor) is a type of transistor, a component used as a switch or an amplifier of electric signals.”

That’s what this tutorial says. We probably have them to turn on motors and other higher power devices (12 V) with the Arduino. Also some projects with a lot of leds use mosfets to divide voltage evenly – at least as far as I understood πŸ™‚
