Found this the otherday, thought it might be of interest.

As the article is from 1966 I hope its alright to post, if their is a proble, tell me and I will delete.

If you were one of the first to download Page1 & 2, I just updated page 2 as their was a minor error

<i>Z=R<sub>c1</sub> || R<sub>c2</sub>||R<sub>bb</sub>, where Rn is ...</i>
should have been:
<i>Z=R<sub>c1</sub> || R<sub>c2</sub>||R<sub>bb</sub>, where R<sub>bb</sub> is...</i>

There is that funky || notation again. Weird.

|| = in parallel with, AFIK

AFIK = As far As I know, AFIK

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is this right?

A||B = (AB)/(A+B)

The rule for parallel devices, resistors etc.

A||B = 1/(1/A +1/B) = 1/((A+B)/AB) = AB/(A+B)

Jfet constant current source
Great ap note on Jfet CCS.

What CCS do you use, and what for? I see that Morsel is working on one to load an opamp. How's that one coming? That one's jfets, right? When you use one in a project, is it an afterthought? If not, is the main PCB designed with it, or is it a replacement for a resistor?

As I've said before, I've drawn a few. They all use BJTs. I print 'em by the dozen. I don't want to believe that my fascination (read: obsession) was a waste of time. Does anybody want to try a few?

The link doesn't work (anymore).
What was the name of the document, so I can search for it ?
