What is IRL540N?

It is designed to handle high currents and voltages, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. Fifth Generation HEXFETs from International Rectifier utilize advanced processing techniques to achieve extremely low on-resistance per silicon area.


1. Maximum voltage rating of 100 volts
2. Maximum current rating of 36 amps
3. Low on-resistance (Rds(on))
4. Fast switching speed
5. High input impedance


It is high current and voltage handling capabilities, which make it suitable for use in high-power circuits. Its fast switching speed also makes it ideal for use in circuits that require fast switching times.


Its high input impedance can make it susceptible to electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, and its sensitivity to voltage spikes and surges may require additional protective measures in some circuits.

Absolute maximum ratings ( Ta=25°C )

1. Drain to source Voltage: VDSS = 100 V

2. Gate to source Voltage: VGSS = ± 16 V

3. Drain current: ID = 36 A

4. Power Dissipation: Pd = 140 W

5. Channel temperature: Tch = 175 °C

6. Storage temperature: Tstg = -55 to +175 °C
