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?

As given in the datasheet ,I used Si7852 / Si7174 mosfets as TOP and BOTTOM mosfets.
My Input is 24V ( range is 21v to 62v)and Out put is 12v @ 3A and switching frequency is 250Khz. This gives us duty cycle of 50% at Swithcing node.

The mosfet acts as a switch. So, when it is on, you can think of it being a short between drain and source. You will get 120V across the load and 0V across the mosfet (ideally). That's why you don't measure 120V at the drain. Instead, when the mosfet is off, the voltage reading at drain with respect to source, will be 120V, since drain is (...)

The general rule of thumb for heating mosfets is either from linear region use, not enough current for switching, or actual conduction (on resistance).
1.) Can you show the circuit?
2.) What is your load that you are driving?
3.) What is the switching frequency?
The problem could lie within the speed you are switching at and the 500mA the chip i
