[11:17] <fnoble> hi
[11:17] <fnoble> edmoore: you there?
[11:18] <edmoore> yes
[11:18] <edmoore> did you get my email?
[11:18] <fnoble> no?
[11:18] <edmoore> check
[11:19] <fnoble> need to ask about the logic level mosfets
[11:19] <fnoble> why cant we use normal mosfets?
[11:19] <fnoble> and do you have any in your box
[11:20] <edmoore> logic level because they have driver circuitry to pull the v-gate significantly above v-drain/source
[11:20] <edmoore> which is how you saturate the mosfet on
[11:20] <edmoore> i.e. with it's lowest Rds-on
[11:20] <fnoble> ok
[11:21] <edmoore> it may not be necessary for this app
[11:21] <fnoble> do you have any suitable for cutdowns?
[11:21] <edmoore> but it's a nice thing to do
[11:21] <edmoore> no, but rapid do
[11:21] <edmoore> actually I might...
[11:21] <edmoore> in a black tray with a transparent hinged lid
[11:21] <edmoore> in some static bags at the back
[11:21] <fnoble> ok, i will look in a bit
[11:21] <fnoble> thanks, will order some more anyway
[11:21] <edmoore> see what they say on them and find the d-sheet - i have a feeling they might be logic level to220s
[11:23] <edmoore> checked your email?
[11:27] <fnoble> yes but the link doesnt work
[11:27] <fnoble> has the telit board arrived at yours yet?
[11:30] <fnoble> edmoore~: ping
[11:30] <edmoore> nope
[11:30] <edmoore> ok, go to the sparkfun forum
[11:30] <edmoore> then gps
[11:30] <fnoble> ook i found it
[11:30] <edmoore> and there's a thread on telits randomly reseting
[11:31] <edmoore> and floating this and that
[11:31] <fnoble> ok, bbiab
[11:31] <fnoble> thanks
