The term 'mosfet' stands for Metal Oxide Semiconductor field effect transistor. it also known as metal oxide silicon transistor. in a computer mosfet helps to make Voltage Regulator Module on the motherboard which controls the amount of voltage which received by components like graphic cards and CPU. it makes sure that the operating voltage does not exceeds.

The full form of the M- metal, O-oxide, S- semiconductor, F- field, E-effect, T- transistor.  In the PC , MOSFETs is working as a VRM (voltage regulator module).It controls how much voltage other components on the motherboard, like the CPU or graphics card will receive.

Full form of mosfet is metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor.

It is used to switch or amplify voltages in circuits. It is a current-controlled device that is constructed with 3 terminals.

The MOSFET was invented by Mohamed M. Atalla and Dawon Kahng in the year 1959.

The Full form of MOSFET is Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor. It is also called as the metal–oxide–silicon transistor .

MOSFET is one of the main invention in computer technology and electrical industry.

MOSFET is a transistor and also a semiconductor device which is mainly used as a switch and also used to amplify signals in electrical device. It is present in motherboard and also present in power supply unit of the computer whose main purpose is to control voltage flow between the components of computer.

There are two classes of MOSFET

Depletion Mode

Enhancement mode
