15

FET APPLICATIONS

• As a buffer amplifier : A buffer amplifier is a stage of amplification that isolates the preceding stage from the following stage. Because of high input impedance and low output impedance, a FET can act as an excellent buffer amplifier. • Phase shift oscillators : The high input impedance of FET is especially valuable in phase shift oscillator to minimize the loading effect
