ABSTRACT
This article highlights the benefits of Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistors (MOSFET). With the increased demand for more cabin features placing a greater power demand on the engine, combined with the federal mileage requirements, new low-resistance power MOSFET are enabling a move from traditional power generation and hydraulic systems to electronic systems in the automobile. These MOSFET are helping to increase comfort and safety while simultaneously improving mileage. The engine has more demands placed on it than simply moving the vehicle along the road. It is the power plant for all the automobile's systems.
