Transconductance The ability of a JFET to amplify is described as trans-conductance and is merely the change in drain current divided by the change in gate voltage. Sometimes the value of this resistor needs to be adjusted for impedance matching depending on the type of signal source involved.

Although voltage gain appears low in a JFET, power gain is almost infinite. MPF – 20ma 2N – 22ma 2N – 15ma When designing a N23819 circuit, it is highly recommended to prevent the absolute maximum current from being exceeded under any conditions.

When the gate voltage goes positive, drain current will increase until the minimum drain to source resistance is obtained and is indicated below: Resistor R3 does almost nothing for the actual biasing voltages of the circuit.

Resistor R3, which is listed in the above diagram, merely sets the input impedance and insures zero volts appears across the gate with no signal. The optional 10uf capacitor which bypasses R2 is used to obtain the maximum amount of gain the transistor will deliver. Unlike bipolar transistors, current can flow through the drain and source in any direction equally. The addition of this capacitor may introduce a small amount of unwanted white noise and should only be used when an absolutely quiet preamplifier is not required.


When designing a JFET circuit, it 2n381 highly recommended to prevent the absolute maximum current from being exceeded under any conditions.

Slightly larger or smaller capacitor values will also give acceptable results. By putting our two circuits together we now have a two transistor JFET audio preamplifier with excellent gain and very low distortion. Back to Projects Page!

Listed below are absolute maximum drain currents for some common N-channel transistors: Because we will only allow 5 ma of current through the drain to source, we will calculate the total resistance for resistors R1 and R2.

We will assume the Minimum 23n819 ds on to be zero. Drain Characteristics Even though no voltage appears at the gate, a substantial amount of current will flow from the drain to the source. In fact, the JFET does not actually turn off until the gate goes several volts negative.

Minimum R ds on or On State Resistance. We will make the following assumptions: The lower values enhance stability but tend to decrease gain. The higher values allow the JFET to amplify very weak signals but require measures to prevent oscillations.

It is very suitable for extremely low level audio applications as in audio preamplifiers. For resistor R3, the gate resistor, we will use 1 Meg for a very high impedance across the gate.


Designing JFET Audio PreAmplifiers

We will allow no more than 5 ma of drain current under any circumstances. To prevent oscillations a 10 ohm resistor and a uf capacitor were added to isolate the circuit from the power supply. The above value can be determined by reading specification sheets for the selected transistor. The gate resistor is normally anywhere from 1 Meg to K. Minimum R ds on or On State Resistance The above value can be determined by reading specification sheets for 2n319 selected transistor.

In cases where it is not known, it is safe to assume it is zero.

Often the drain and source can be reversed in a circuit with almost no ret on circuit operation. It is indicated as Mhos or Siemens and is typically 2. Because of the high input impedance, the gate is considered an open circuit and draws no power from the source.

The JFET is more expensive than conventional bipolar transistors but offers superior overall performance.

The other important characteristic is the absolute maximum drain current. A 10K level control was added to complete the preamplifier circuit. This zero gate voltage current through the drain to the source is how the bias is set in the JFET.
