Thanks John and will do. It will be an interesting exercise in itself
- I've never tried photographing from the scope screen!
Given that I *am* making life difficult for myself by driving the
motor with relatively low frequency pulses, a further use of scope
traces beyond assessing power dissipation in the fets will, I imagine,
be to observe and attempt to minimise, the amplitude of voltage
transients across the fet.
Would I be correct in thinking that in addition to the Schottkys and
attention to short stout wiring to minimise inductance, there may be
some scope for further tuning out of fast spikes e.g. by judicious
application of RC snubbers?
