Totally Useless Article[edit]

The perhaps half-a-dosen academics worldwide who research FETs this article wouldn't say anything new. For the other perhaps 250 million who just wants to know how to design a circuit with a FET, the article says NOTHING. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:46, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Resistance Calculations....[edit]

The wiki says, "Conceptually, MOSFETs are like resistors in the on-state, and shorter resistors have less resistance." From the basic surely reducing the length would not change the resistance?

EG: for this example lets make rho=5; let the width of the channel=2 and we will vary the length. If we start with the length at 10, the resistance will be: If we reduce the length to 5, the resistance will be:

(NB: this is my first wiki edit and I've probably broken loads of conventions. Could someone please edit/delete this, whatever is appropriate)

The A in your formula is the area formed by the other two directions, so to speak width and height of the channel, not length.
But the article chapter you are referring to is nevertheless a but fishy .
Your edit was just fine, you only missed to use the "auto signing" feature of the software, putting four tildes at the end of your discussion statement, would give user and date/time info.

Graphical Representation of MOSFET operation in circuits[edit]

Would it not be usefull to include Vin/Vout graphs? i.e. what the 'resistance' across the MOSFET does as the gain-source voltage increases? Yossarian 10:19, 11 Jun 2005 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 4 external links on MOSFET. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Merge MISFET[edit]

I suggest that MISFET is merged here. The article is only a single short paragraph and MOSFET already says nearly all of what is there. As I understand it, the difference is only a question of the materials used, so it is unlikely that MISFET would ever be substantially different from this article even if it were fully expanded.

strongly object. These are different concepts. Wikipedia is not paper to squeeze everything into one page. That the page is short means semi engineers don't give a dime for wikipedia, but it does not mean there is nothing to write. Staszek Lem (talk) 16:26, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Maybe. If the MISFET article can be expanded a bit to talk about the materials that are alternatives to oxide, and if transistors of that sort are not already described in MOSFET, then it can stay separate. Dicklyon (talk) 16:48, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
Exactly; there is not a bit but lots. However it is a highly specialized area, and things are experimental, and experts in materials science are too busy to waste their time here. Staszek Lem (talk) 17:01, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
