Can the drain and the source of a MOSFET be used as a flywheel diode?

Latest Updated:08/01/2005

Question:

Can the parasite diode between the drain and the source of a MOSFET be used as a flywheel diode?

Answer:

The parasite diode is not suitable for high-speed control due to a long reverse recovery time, so such use of the parasite diode should be refrained from.
