Default Depletion mode?


Does anyone happen to know if there exists a P-channel depletion mode mosfet? Preferably one similar to this one in characteristics... or

Enhancement or depletion doesn't really matter, they would be used as a cascode in the VAS of a balanced bridge circuit (...attempt ). That is, they are used as a common gate amplifier. I have read that Trench type fets aren't good for audio, partly because of the input capacitance relation with Vds. I think from the data sheet the DN3525 would be a better part, or anything that is similar, but I can only find N-channel types, and of course at least rough complements are desired. Case style is completely open though since this circuit doesn't really exist yet. Is there anyone who makes a P-channel depletion mode mosfet? Does such a thing even exist?

All the trouble I've ever been in started out as fun......

Have you checked the IXYS web site?
They are specilized in power semiconductor,
and if I'm not wrong they have P-channel mosfet (depletion).
