Guide for Analog and Digital Electronics Module 1 Q1. Explain the construction and principle of operation of N-Channel and P-Channel Junction Field Effect Transistor (JFET). Answer: N-Channel Junction Field Effect Transistor (JFET) Construction: Drain(D) Gate(G) P N P Depletion region N-Channel Source(S) The above figure shows the cross sectional view of the N-Channel JFET. P-type semiconductor material are embedded into the N-type semiconductor material as shown in the figure. N-type semiconductor material form a channel between embedded layers of P-type material. Two P-N junctions are formed. Contracts at the top and bottom are referred as Drain (D) and Source (S) respectively. Both the P-type are connected together to form Gate (G). (Note: For P-Channel JFET, embedded material is N-type. Construction of P-Channel is left to you. In the remaining section, only N-Channel types are explained. P-channel types are left to you.)

Guide for Analog and Digital Electronics Module 1 Principle of Operation: Depletion Region D + e VDS + VGS=0 - - ID G VDD VGS=0 N P P e VDD e e S When a positive Drain (D)-Source (S) voltage(VDS) is applied with Gate(G) shorted with the Source (S) terminal (VGS=0), the electrons in the N-Channel are attracted to the Drain (D) terminal and due to the flow of electrons, Drain Current (ID) is established. The value ID depends on the applied VDS and the resistance of the N-Channel. There is uniform voltage drop across the channel and the two P-N junctions are reversed biased. This results in increase of width of the depletion regions. The depletion regions are wider near the drain region. ID increases linearly with the increase of VDS till saturation effect sets in. The value of VDS where the saturation effect sets in is referred to as Pinch-Off (VP) voltage. When VDS reaches VP, the value of ID remain same with the further increase of VDS. The Gate–Source voltage (VGS) is to control the value ID. When a negative voltage is applied between Gate and Source terminals, there is an increase of width of the depletion layers and as a result the value of Drain Current (ID) decreases. As the value VGS is made further negative, at a certain value of negative VGS, the Drain Current become zero. This voltage is referred as GateSource pinch-Off voltage. The relation between the Drain Current, ID for a given value of VGS is given by 2  V  ID  IDSS 1  GS  VP   Where IDSS is the Drain to Source Current when Gate is shorted with the Source. VP is the Pinch –Off voltage. The drain resistance (rd) in the saturation region is given by r0 Where r0 is the resistance at VGS=0 and VP is the Pinch –Off voltage. rd  2  VGS  1   VP   Page: 2
Guide for Analog and Digital Electronics Module 1 Q2. Explain the Characteristics of N-Channel and P-Channel Junction Field Effect Transistor. Answer: N-Channel Junction Field Effect Transistor (JFET) Output Characteristic ID(mA) 6 5 Ohmic region Breakdown region Saturation region VGS=0V IDSS 4 VGS=-1V 3 2 VGS=-2V 1 VGS=-3V VGS=-4V 5 10 15 VDS(V) 20 25 The output characteristic of the N-Channel JFET is shown in the above diagram. Drain Current (ID) is plotted against Drain-Source voltage (VDS) keeping the Gate-Source voltage (VGS) constant. As shown in the diagram, at lower value of Drain-Source voltage (VDS), the Drain Current (ID) is proportional Drain-Source voltage(VDS) and it follows the Ohm’s law. This region is referred as Ohmic region. As Drain-Source voltage (VDS) increases further, at a certain value Drain Current (ID) does not increase and this region as shown in the diagram is referred as Saturation region. If Drain-Source voltage(VDS) is goes on increase, then after certain value of Drain-Source voltage(VDS), the Drain Current (ID) increases rapidly with small increase of Drain-Source voltage(VDS) as shown in the diagram. This region is referred as breakdown region. Page: 3
