This paper presents the design of a high-side N-channel MOSFET driver using discrete components for 24Vdc operation. Special level shifting technique is used to increase the gate voltage higher than the supply voltage. Voltage readings at various points of the driver were also taken for reference. The designed high-side driver was tested to observe its performance with respect to different gate input frequencies, from 50Hz up to 150kHz using the MOSFET IRF730 as the switching device. The results obtained indicate that the driver circuit works well up to frequency of 150kHz where the width ratio found to be more than 72%.
