A-channel JUGFET = p-channel JUGFET?

I recently got a question in my assignment which asks me to explain how an a-channel and n-channel JUGFET works.
I was searching over the internet for how a a-channel JUGFET works but couldn't find any, just p-channel and n-channel. So I was wondering whether a-channel JUGFET is actually the same as a p-channel JUGFET?

I never herd about a-channel JUGFET also I never herd about p-channel JUGFET.
What is JUFFET? I only heard about JFET (Junction FET) and MOSFET.
And we have N-channel JFET and P-channel JFET.

That's weird, my exact question is

"describe how a n channel JUGFET works'

A-channel JUGFET = p-channel JUGFET?

I which country you use this term "JUGFET" instead of JFET ??

I'm studying in the United Kingdom. I've found the n-channel JUGFET so it obviously exists, just not a-channel.

Silly me, I mis-read the question. Nevermind. Thanks for the assistance.

Apparently, JUGFET is another name for JFET. I hadn't seen that before. Glad you figured out the mis-read on the a-channel JFET.

Glossary Term: JUGFET


A JFET, or junction field-effect transistor, or JUGFET, is a FET in which the gate is created by reverse-biased junction (as opposed to the MOSFET which creates a junction via a field generated by conductive gate, separated from the gate region by a thin insulator).
For example: A p-channel JFET would consist of a bar of p-type silicon with the "drain" at one end and the "source" at the other. Between these two terminals is some n-type material connected to a "gate". A positive voltage applied to the gate creates a "depletion field" which restricts current flow between the source and drain.
