There would be a division at the SS v. Vacuum tube but both methods still have a lot in common. I do feel that both overload performance and operation within design parameter are critical qty in deciding how to execute.

Remember: the bottom line is that if we're paralyzed by the analyze step, nothing gets listened to...

I do have a few favourites,but setting them out would defeet the purpose of my question: how do you do it?
cheers,
Douglas

Seems like the basic premise is the same, a voltage divider with the active element in shunt.


exactly so... [message #9211 is a reply to message #9207] Sat, 24 September 2005 09:26 Go to previous message

some of the active elements can be quite high performance. I am going to try my hand at a BJT instead of the MOSFET. not that the MOSFET worked poorly, but I have a feeling I can improve it...

There are a few ways to do an amplified Zener string too.
cheers,
