The gate resistor is normally anywhere from 1 Meg to K. A 10K level control was added to complete the preamplifier circuit.

We will assume the Minimum R ds on to be zero. 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. It is indicated as Mhos or Siemens and is typically 2. Sometimes the value of this resistor needs to be adjusted for impedance matching depending on the type of signal source involved. MPF – 20ma 2N – 22ma 2N – 15ma When designing a JFET circuit, it is highly recommended to prevent the absolute maximum current from being exceeded under any conditions.
Drain Characteristics Even though no voltage appears at the gate, a substantial amount of current will flow from the drain to the source.
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. Listed below are absolute maximum drain currents for some common N-channel transistors: When designing a JFET 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: Minimum R ds on or On State Resistance. Unlike bipolar transistors, current can flow through the drain and source in any direction equally. We will make the following assumptions: The lower values enhance stability but tend to decrease gain.
Minimum R ds on or On State Resistance The above value can be determined by reading specification sheets for the selected transistor.
Often the drain and source can be reversed in a circuit with almost no effect on circuit operation. Back to Projects Page!
This zero gate voltage current through the drain to the source is how the bias is set in the JFET. Slightly larger or smaller capacitor values will also give acceptable results.
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. We will allow no more than 5 ma of drain current under any circumstances.
In fact, the JFET does not actually turn off until the gate goes several volts negative. 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 JFET is more expensive than conventional bipolar transistors but offers superior overall performance.
It is very suitable fef extremely low level audio applications as in audio preamplifiers.
2N N Channel FET
The higher values allow the JFET to amplify very weak signals but require measures to prevent oscillations. Because of the high input impedance, the gate is considered an open circuit and draws no power from the source. In cases where it is not known, it is safe to assume it is zero.
The above value can be determined by reading specification sheets for the selected transistor. Although voltage gain appears low in a JFET, power gain is almost infinite.
The optional 10uf capacitor which bypasses Fe is used to obtain the maximum amount of gain the transistor will deliver. Resistor R3 does almost nothing for the actual biasing voltages of the circuit. By putting our two circuits together we now have a two transistor JFET audio preamplifier with excellent gain and very low distortion.
