Hey anons, need some help here. Trying to build a wireless LED circuit to try out induction coils
The current issue I've got is that the mosfet gets really hot very quickly.
My deduction through googling is that the IRF540 is not fully activated using the output from NE555, thus heating up due to the higher resistance.
Is my deduction correct, is the solution then to get a logic level mosfet instead? What is the appropriate fix here? I am not very familiar with mosfets
Also, what is the output voltage for the square wave produced by NE555?
Is it always 5V PWM being produced in this case?
