HELP with P channel MOSFET.? Answered
i've got a P MOSFET to connect some LEDs to 5v, regardless of where I connect the gate, the MOSFET (and the LEDs) always stay ON.
Iv'e tried connecting the gate to 5 volts (on the source), to the drain, even to a higher voltage (13v) and nothing, current keeps passing through.
I have checked my connections and pinout diagrams and they are all correct, but i thought that the MOSFET would let current pass when the gate was connected to Gnd and block it when it was connected to 5v (same as source), am I wrong?
please help, i'm lost and i have found nothing useful on the web.
PD i'm trying to control it with an arduino, and I have had no luck whatsoever.
