Mosfet clipping?
« on: November 27, 2011, 09:28:47 PM »
If you connect Gate and Source to use a mosfet as a clipping diode which side is the anode and which side is the cathode?  Is this the same for Mosfets and Jfets?

Jack Orman did a fantastic article on it. First google hit for 'mosfet clipping': http://www.muzique.com/lab/zenmos.htm.
