MOSFET Transistor: Basics, Operation and Types

mosfet image

Mosfet is voltage controlled field effect transistor has a metal oxide gate electrode which is electrically insulated from the main semiconductor n-channel or p-channel by a very thin layer of insulating material i.e. silicon dioxide known as glass. In our previous articles, we explain in detail about Fet operation and JFET Transistor operation. In this article, we are going to explain Mosfet types, operation, structure etc. Mosfet basics: MOSFETs generally work by electronically varying the width of a channel through which charge carriers i.e. electrons or holes travels because the device conduction is directly proportional to the channel width. The wider Read More …

Comparison Between JFET and MOSFET

Comparison between JFET and MOSFET image

Fet is categorized into Jfet and Mosfet, both are quite similar in their operating principles and electrical properties. In our previous articles, we explain Fet transistors and its operation, pn junction diode characteristics in detail. Here we are going to explain you in detail about JFET , Mosfet and difference between them. JFET( Junction Field Effect Transistor): JFET is a voltage controlled semiconductor device used as amplifiers, electronically controlled switches and voltage controlled resistors in many applications. Junction field effect transistor has no p-n junctions but has a high resistivity semiconductor material forming a channel of either n-type or p-type silicon Read More …
