# Understand the curves of the mosfet

Ask QuestionAsked todayActive todayViewed 10 times2

I am trying to understand the curves of the mosfet, sorry if the doubt is very basic Where the red point is is the saturation zone of the mosfet, therefore the source drain voltage must be 0v because at this point the mosfet is saturated conduction at maximum current, because on the X axis of the graph called Vds marks 10v for the point Red?

*therefore the source drain voltage must be 0v*No, the red dot is at the point where VDSVDS = 10 V, see the X-axis of the graph. The*source drain voltage***is**VDSVDS. Look up when a MOSFET is in saturation, there is an equation which tells you that VDSVDS needs to be**larger**than a certain value. – Bimpelrekkie 14 mins ago - Ah, let me see. (1) The green region is the “saturation” region. (2) The yellow region is the “linear”, or “ohmic”, or “triode” region. (3) In the saturation region, the thick horizontal (well, slightly tilting upwards) straight lines (well, OK, curves) represent the points in the region of a particular Vgs value. (4) So for example, the curve that the red dot sits represents the points of Vgs = 2.5V. (5) The vertical lines 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 mean the voltage across Drain and Source, Vds. (6) Now the
says this: (a) Vds = 10V, (b) Vgs = 2.5V,*red dot operating point*. – tlfong01 1 min ago Edit*Id = approx 16A*
