Here is the mosfet driver stage I'm about to implement to drive an inductive load at 24V and a maximum of 10 amps. The pulse input has bee simplified, but the final device will contain a TTL totem device driving the mosfet. Operating frequency will be a maximum of 500kHz.

D1 is a SBL1030 schottky diode for reverse current protection.
D2 is a UF4006 fast recovery rectifier to allow the inductor to freewheel. It is included to prevent the body diode in the mosfet from activating.
U1 is a FQP9N50C mosfet.
R1 is used as a basic pull-down resistor and to provide a minimum load to the pulse generator.
There will also be a 10 amp fast blow circuit breaker included in the built circuit.

Any ideas or suggestions? I'm getting tired of frying output mosfets.

I've assembled and tested this setup, and it works beautifully. The on state current on the real circuit is much higher than the simulation shows, so I added the oscillator with an opamp buffer, and increase the opamp voltage to closer reflect the actual current. The real circuit has a 12v supply running the opamp. Here is the full circuit:

Micro p/n tcpa4422 and tcpa4421 or TI p/n UCC37321  and UCC37322 are 9amp inverted and non-inverted mosfet drivers set in a DIP-8 package other available like TO-220

 

Agreed Todd, even eliminating the op amp might help, the 555 can probably source more currant, but the driver

would be much, much better especially @ 500 KHZ because of gate cap.

Try n I g b t instead of a straight mosfet
