Closed: Re: MOSFET Gets Hot in H Bridge

the source of the N channel FETs is at 0V
the gate of the N channel FETs is at 12V or 0V, depending on the state of the transistor
therefore the N channel FET is ON or OFF depending on the...

How are you powering the electromagnet?
you will need to provide a path for the current when you turn it off.
if you do not, you can get very large voltage spikes that can damage the equipment.

mm is millimeter, 10^-3 m
um is micrometer, 10^-6 m

converting requires moving decimal point 3 places corresponding to multiplying or dividing by 1000,

i think it will work
but the LED is always on, and there are simpler circuits to just turn on the the LED
at 3.5 mA the LED will not be very bright.

this test is accomplished by tieing all of the primary leads together and all of the secondary(ies) leads together
