Two of the oldest and best known n-channel JFETs are the 2N and the MPF, which are usually housed in TO92 plastic packages with the connections. Hi all. I recently received some 2N FETs from China. The datasheet says the centre leg is the gate. Not so on these. This leads me to the. Part, 2N Category. Description, N-channel J-FET. Company, Philips Semiconductors (Acquired by NXP). Cross ref.

If you insert a diode or an electrolytic cap, you will get the same output display independent of how you insert the device into the socket.

When a 2n319 negative control voltage is fed to Q1 gate, the JFET acts like a near-infinite resistance and causes zero signal attenuation, so the circuit gives high overall gain but, when the gate bias is zero, the FET acts like a low resistance and causes heavy signal attenuation, so the circuit gives an overall signal loss.

As the graph shows, the normal and reversed data points plot on top of each other for all practical purposes. The gate diode is shown at the bottom of the symbol, nearest the source. Unless the datasheet says they are symmetrical it’s best not to make any ffet.

The tester does not care how you insert the part! Field-Effect Transistors FETs are unipolar devices, and have some big advantages over bipolar transistors. Suppose that an I D of 1mA is wanted, and that a V GS bias of -2V2 is needed to feh this condition; the correct bias can obviously be obtained by giving Rs a value of 2k2; if I D get to fall for some reason, V GS naturally falls as 2b3819, and thus makes I D increase and counter the original change; the bias is thus self-regulating via negative feedback.


In each device, the channel has a consistent width. The J is a symmetrical device, according to the data sheet, so I measured one sample in normal configuration and one with the source and drain leads reversed, with the results shown below.

Will this reversal cause a problem? Part 4 of 4. The drain and source are terminals at the ends of this bar.

If the device tester gets confused to determine the leads and come up with random results, it should be a sign of symmetrical device all way, otherwise Gate lead has slight partiality towards Source lead as per device specs, however the conclusion would be that practically it does not matter much.

You can interchange S and D, but performance may be slightly different. Report back, thanks EDIT: All practical circuits shown here are specifically designed around the 2N, but will operate equally well when using the MPF You will notice different looking 2n which only show up from china in ebay, and they come from domestic production mostly.

Intermediate values of signal attenuation and overall gain or loss can be obtained by varying the control voltage value. The circuit can accept input signal levels up to a tet of mV RMS Q1 and R4 are wired in series to form a voltage-controlled attenuator that controls the input signal level to common emitter amplifier Q2, which has its output buffered via emitter follower Q3.

Simple self-biasing common-source amplifier. Three basic JFET biasing techniques are in common use. The GM checks all the pins and then decides fett to assign them.

Next, you rotate the device and insert Drain at socket pin1 -tester gives you result D 1 -on the other hand if this was a symmetric JFET, you might still get S 1 only because when the tester ‘polls’ at pin1 it don’t know if it is Source or Drain. Figure 8 shows a hybrid JFET plus bipolar source follower. Here’s what’s going on inside these parts: Not so on these.

I had to do that to qualify for the “all thumbs engineer” award. The 2N datasheet doesn’t say anything about them being symmetric. The difference between circle and no-circle is US versus European standards.

It can be used with any amplifier that can provide a 9V to 18V power source. The datasheet says the centre leg is the gate. Note then if the high effective value of input impedance of this circuit is to be maintained, the output must either be taken to external loads via an additional emitter follower stage as shown dotted in the diagram or must be taken only to fairly high impedance loads. Figures 12 and 13 show circuits of these types.
