Mosfet caracteristics for a gyrator

Hello. I want to build a gyrator inductor to replace a 30h 100mA.
I would like better performance if possible, so I used LTspice sim (new to this).

And I found that different mosfet give different attenuation at 120Hz

So what should I look for when choosing a mosfet for a gyrator. I have not found anything on the internet.

Thank you.

Once you have sorted out basic, down to earth parameters like Id max, Vto, Pd max, etc, the most important parameter for static performance is lambda (channel modulation):


It will determine the ultimate low frequency performance possible for a simple (no global FB) gyrator.

If you are interested in HF rejection too, capacitance could also be important.

The λ is not specified in the datasheet, only in the spice model (not always).

If the DS has the full set of Id/Vds curves, it can be estimated from the slope of the curves (deviation from horizontality)
