The channel resistance of an N-channel JFET shown in the figure below is 600 W
when the full channel thickness (t

_{ch}) of 10 μm is available for conduction. The built-in voltage of the gate P^{+}N junction (V_{bi}) is -1 V. When the gate to source voltage (V_{GS}) is 0 V, the channel is depleted by 1 μm on each side due to the built in voltage and hence the thickness available for conduction is only 8 μm The channel resistance when V_{GS}= -3 V isQuestions Asked from BJT and FET (Marks 2)
