The rookie's guide to reading datasheets
posted April 16 2011 19:49.47 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Many times in the past, i have answer a particular question like this: "[...]You need to learn how to read datasheets". Learning how to read datasheets is a must for all electronic enthusiasts, regardless whether you want to design your own circuit or you want to replicate one. But sometimes it can be very frustrating and lead you to false results:

"Datasheets Lie." I'm sure we've all said it before. I've said it myself, and I still catch myself saying it. Just because we say it, it doesn't mean it's true. Most datasheets are, in fact, very accurate and representative of the part. Sometimes you have to read all the lines to find the truth between the facts.

So, here is a good point to start with, the circuitguy guide to reading datasheets. Being a power electronics expert, he describes what all those numbers symbols ad charts mean in the IRFP4568 power mosfet's datasheet. Cool dig from electronics-lab
