No you cannot, because you need a P-JFET with a low transconductance. If you talk to Steen nicely, maybe he can help with 2SJ103s.

Just in time. Lucky you.

Failing that :

Get them while you can. They are amazing devices, if you use them right.

Hi Patrick,

thanks for the link, I missed that one. I also found this:

For sale : Constant Current Diode 1N5314, 100V, 4.7mA

Ordered a couple of those too.


Thanks for sharing it with us.

This guy claims to have 12000 pieces and are offering US$2.75 for matched :

12,000 will last the DIY needs for decades. There is no more reason not to build the DAO TCS, or even the DAO TCS-X.

Patrick,
He hasn't actually got any of the 12,000 yet and he's been "Doing the Deal" for quite a while now and you know the saying about things "inthe mail"! - sorry Dave.

Seriously, I wouldn't imagine they're quality control rejects or production-end discards - a quick random test will tell all.

Good price for matched - tolerance is ..?

Luke;
No problemo at all But a little warning is appropriate! I ordered 30 pcs at first and barely managed to get 2 matched pairs. I was probably just unlucky, 'cause usually the Toshiba's just keep rolling up matching devices. Matching/measuring my stock of 389/109's spawned several quads within 1% Man, did they match!
Well, I can get a few hundred of those 2SJ103's, in case you want some. Just shoot me a mail.

Is there any other alternative to the J511? I've read some other threads saying that you can use another 25V jfet with gate and source tied together with a resistor in front of it, but I have no idea what jfet and resistor value to use

Would anyone please be able to help with a modified version without the J511?

Yes that depends on the IDSS of the jfet; alternatively you can use a pot or more failsafe, a pot with a resistor in series.

Have fun, Hannes

The 2SJ103 should have about 8mA Idss.

Depending on JFET Vgs variations, the resistor values might need adjusting. I should start with a 1k trimpot for R1 to set DC offset to zero first.

Hope you'll build this. Total dissipation about 15W.

Hi hi

Can anybody let me know if:
1) Is this the last alteration of this circuit?
2) A headamp? If so, around 1w output?
