I want to do simple PWM control of a 12V DC motor with a N-channel MOSFET as a low side driver. Using Digikey search I found Fairchild FDD8586. I expect to connect the output from my AVR to the gate via a 100R resistor so Vgs needs to be low, this one is 2.5V. 35A continuous current is overkill. D-PAK, although surface mount, isn't even too hard to solder. In single unit quantities they cost $US0.78, and stock looks good.
Any suggestions for better choices?
