JFET Circuit Analysis – great tutorials on YouTube

Looking for some detailed information about JFET circuit analysis, I ran today into three excellent videos posted by Bournemouth University. Already subscribed to them. The videos are part of Linear and Switching Circuits Series and target the following topics: Performing the DC JFET circuit analysis of a simple JFET self-bias amplifier (to find the circuit […]
