What are the best electronic switches?

Asked by will (104points) December 11th, 2009

I am working on a design for a Lightbook and expect it to be powering up and down potentially hundreds of times a day.

I was wondering what to use as switches ― maybe a solid state relay?

How many amps are we talking about, and at what voltage? The link to your PDF came up blank, but you would probably want to use a solid state device of some kind. CMOS flip-flop coupled to a power MOSFET. But the kind of device you are trying to build is going to be a single board system, low chip count, SMDs.
