What is Fet: Definition and 29 Discussions

Fet is a municipality in Viken county, Norway. It is part of the Romerike traditional region. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Fetsund.
Fet was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). The new municipality of Rælingen was separated from Fet on 1 July 1929. The part of Enebakk municipality lying east of lake Øyeren was transferred to Fet in 1962.

    GaAs FET Troubleshooting: Assembly Not Working

    Hello. I use 2 GaAs fet in a HF system. This assembly worked properly for several weeks and now doesn't work anymore. Before replacing these 2 transistors I would like to know how it is possible that all voltages ( drains & sources) are still correct, while the complete assembly stopped to work ?

    Difference between h-parameters and hybrid pi?

    Hey guys, I'm confused as to the difference between the h-parameters usually given by datasheets and their hybrid-pi model analogues. For instance, I know hfe = Beta in small signal analysis, but what about the other h-parameters. Thanks for any help with clarifying this.

    How to measure the mode of a FET

    1) When a FET is completely on, the voltage drop across the drain-source is ideally 0. This means that when completely on, V_{ds}<V_{gs}. Why doesn't the FET go into ohmic/triode mode when V_{ds} dips below V_{gs} ? 2) Why are we measuring these voltages relative to the source (for a standard...

    Can somebody please explain and walk me though this motor drive circuit?

    The Drive terminals are connected to a PWM signal generated by an arduino micro controller. The purpose of this circuit is to isolate the arduino from the motors to avoid too much current being drawn. What I understand so far: The motor will only turn when the diode is reverse biased. When it...

    Source Follower with Current-Source Load

    Homework Statement I am trying to analyze the following circuit: "Note that if the two 2N5485s approximately match in their characteristics, not only is the voltage gain unity, but the DC offset is small: the constant current due to Q2 creates a constant voltage drop across R1. Furthermore...

    Why Are BJTs Considered Cheaper to Operate Than FETs?

    why are people saying BJTs are cheaper to OPERATE? the field effect devices require less current and should therefore cost less no?

    How does FET amplifier amplify?

    BJT ,the output voltage is amplified because there is dc voltage supply to keep BJT active ,but what about the FET? The voltage supplied only control the gate only, anything to do with the output? Thanks

    Can an Arduino Effectively Drive a Power MOSFET at High Frequencies?

    I want to drive a IRFP250N power MOSFET using a square wave generated by an Arduino at high frequencies, maybe 1kHz or so. I doubt I can hook up the digital out to the mosfet gate, so is there some kind of gate driver I can make/buy that will take in the square wave signal and violently switch...

    When Should You Choose a BJT Over a MOSFET?

    What is the input impedance of a FET amplifier circuit?

    Hello all, In one of our labs we determined the input impedance of a FET amplifier circuit via a potentiometer. We were told it was due to "maximum power transfer theorem" (something we have not learned yet). Essentially we attached a potentiometer in series with the input of the circuit and...

    Carbon Nanotube FET: Gate Voltage and Conductance

    Why Do We Treat Input and Output Impedances Differently in FET Amplifiers?

    Hi guys, can anyone tell me the reason why we set Vi=0 (short circuit the input side) when we want to find the output impedance Zo but we don't do the same by setting Vo=0 when we find the input impedance Zi? and why do we let Io=0 (open circuit the output side) to find the gain Av? thank you

    Find the Best FET Simulation Software for Your MESFET Design Needs

    Why is FET voltage controlled and BJT current controlled?

    Field Effect Transistors (fet)
