Electrical characteristics of MOSFETs (Charge Characteristic Qg/Qgs1/Qgd/QSW/QOSS)

Electrical characteristics of MOSFETs (Charge Characteristic Qg/Qgs1/Qgd/QSW/QOSS)

Gate charge

Because the Gate (G) input terminal of a MOSFET is insulated, the amounts of charge Q seen from the Gate are important characteristics. Figure 1.5 illustrates the definitions of gate charge characteristics.

Total gate charge Q g

The amount of charge to apply voltage (from zero to designated voltage) to gate

Gate-source charge 1 Q gs1

The amount of charge required for a MOSFET to begin to turn on (before dropping drain-source voltage)

Gate-drain charge Q gd

The amount of gate charge charged in the Miller plateau

Gate switch charge Q sw

The amount of charge stored in the gate capacitance from when the gate-source voltage has reached V th Until the end of the Miller plateau

Output charge Q oss

Drain-source charge

The definition of the gate charge amount is shown in the figure below.
