I am driving DC motor 12volts 6Amp via mosfets with Heat sink & cooling fan, the problem is that when I decrease the duty cycle below 20% the mosfets become very very hot (some times burns out),
It works fine above 50% duty cycle runs motor under normal temperature.
How I can protect mosfets from burning??

Hello to all.
I am trying to design a VCO in 90nm TSMC. The problem is that the current mirror i am designing has large mismatch between the Iref and the Iout. I am using rf nmos transistors to design it. The model i have available has maximum length in nmos 240nm. Can i use a dc mosfet to design the curent mirror?

Is your question related to the leakage current of the mosfets?
A mosfet can't turn completely off , there is a current of a few uA passing through the mosfet even when it is off, the parameter is described in the datasheet.

Both lower side mosfets have a pull down resistor connected to the gate, these resistors switch the lower side mosfets on by default and it doesn't seem a good idea

1. I wanna a pulsed current(1mA, 0mA) to a load resistor(R0).
2. M1, M3 are current mirror pairs.
3. M1 is generating a Vgs1(for 1mA) and M3 is copying a Vgs1 so that M3 can flow current of 1mA.
4. M2 is a switch for shorting and opening between Vg1

there a way to protect the mosfets from saturating using resistors or capacitors?
Due you are under development stage, I suppose you are using a DC regulated power supply, with limit current protection, wright ?
That´s the standard procedure, and if the case, there is no need to do that you are asking.

Consider the DC operating point of both circuits. The second-stage's gate voltage is VDD-|VDS(MP4)|, and approx. equals to VDD-|VGS(MP3)|. This voltage is what the left-hand figure needed. In the right-hand figure, however, the Vgs of the second stage's mosfet will be much greater than Vthn, and changes with power supply -- VDD. This is not desirab

It looks like you are making a constant current source or current limiter. You will need to use a P type mosfet for the series pass transistor and put the source to the input and the drain to the output.
This is a good situation where SPICE type simulators are very good because you can examine the simulated currents. PSpice has a free studen

If you use normal enhancement nmos (nmos outside nwell) as cap, the S, D and B terminals should be tied to VSS. Only the G terminal can be connected to other node. If you want a mos cap not connected to VSS, please use mosfet in nwell -- either nmos in nwell or pmos in nwell. On the latter case, the mosfet should be properly biased.

The mosfet gate drivers are used to ensure a complete on/off state for mosfets .
Also, if the mosfet is a high side switch the source will be considered as a floating point while it is not tied to the ground , so it is important to ensure that the voltage Between the gate and the source is more than 12 v to avoid the negative temperature (...)

I think the difficulty is the SDF is used for STA and other post simulation,it is from the netlist and library.
Unlike analog RC extraction (they can get RC parasitic form mosfet level netlist and layout),it need the timing information in your library,unfortunately,that is what you haven't.

You should duplicate the suggested circuitry in the data sheet
and remove the BJT additions. In your present design the BJTs are not biased properly and do not do any switching. They are just extra networks between the IR chip and the mosfet.

The problem is of course that you cannot drive the mosfet into saturation.
The eaiest thing to do is use a P-ch device and reverse the signal of the PWM.
Else, use a charge pump to generate a voltage about 8-10V higher than the input voltage and power your controller from that voltage. That way you will be able to always drive the (...)

Normal IR remote controls pulse the LED at 1~2A. That is right, amperes. Thus, for a 5V supply you need about a 3 ohm resistor in series with the LED. Use a transistor that can give you that peak current, either mosfet or bipolar.
If that still does not solve the problem, use two or more LED's, each with its own series resistor and drive them
