FET Stabilizes Amplitude of Wien Bridge Oscillator

When the drain-source voltage, VDS, of a field effect transistor approaches zero, the FET behaves very much like a linear variable resistance, and remains nearly linear at higher voltages below pinch-off. This characteristic makes FET's useful as a stabilizing element in oscillator circuits like the Wien bridge oscillator. Read full article
