Hi, I have been trying to wrap my head around why two mosfets are necessary in the circuit for the Addressable N-Mosfet Driver and not just one? What are the differences between the two and what is the meaning behind connecting them in that way?

Mosfet 1 - RJU003N03 Datasheet: https://media.digikey.com/pdf/data%20sh ... 003n03.pdf
Mosfet 2 - NTD5867NL Datasheet: https://www.onsemi.com/pub/Collateral/NTD5867NL-D.PDF

Thanks a lot.

Cheers
