Hi Merlin,

Thank you for the correction. It should be milliamps. I think I was thinking in terms of Vgs matching for mosfets -an elder moment I think.


Matching requirements vary depending on the circuit. You asked a general question and I gave a general answer. It would help if you gave more detail on your specific application.

You want 10 % or better . You have enough 1 or 2 % matches to be just fine

Thank you for that. I'll carry on building using the closest matches that I have.

I agree, a 0.5 ma match should be close enough.

For a reference
I only matched Idss voltage , and was as follows
7.94, 7.95, 7.97, 7.97 (supply was 9.616 volts)

output offsets of the Mezmerize buffer are -0.4mVdc and -1.6mVdc (Pretty good in my opinion)

PS I also bough 100 from Mouser last year (2SK170BLF) at the end of october last year, maybe they still have stock, only cost 55 USD

With this hundred I got quite a few pairs , and the best quad was 9.55, 9.55,9.56,9.56 (i did not use this as I recall that a lower Idss was better for performacne)

Hope this helps (or gives confidence that super macthing is not so critical)

Does the 2SK170BLF need to be matched for the non-turbo f5? They measure around 9.56.

There is only one sk170 bl in an F5.
It cannot require matching.
