It Did Not Work


I was bored yesterday so i thought i would try building an amp from these transistors I have sitting in the box. Ummm yeah I smoked it pretty hard before I even got any significant power out. I think the main thing is that I could not drive it hard enough to get it into the linear region and I might have had a bit to much bias happening. I will try again, but from what I was reading online, these transistors have a habit of wanting to detonate.

    1. Yeah Tom, carbide burr on a dremel. And just run it along a straight edge so it does not wander all over the place LOL, Not that it ended up very pretty, but, it worked 🙂

      1. Ha, no the board looks fine. I’ve made uglier ones that way. I meant the FET… One of those SiC jobs? You know, the ones that can drive a kilowatt if you attach to a 100 lb water-cooled copper block. I have some, somewhere. Haven’t had much time for it.

        1. Oh hahahaha IRFP250N yeah one of those things you can drive like you stole it and get lots of power from.
