Low-Drift High-Impedance JFET DC Voltmeter

Posted on Feb 4, 2014

The voltmeter shown in the schematic diagram below has very high impedance. The range selector uses conventional voltage divider resistors, but since the following pre amplifier uses JFET, the divider can be designed using very high resistance series resistors. This DC voltmeter circuit also featured with low drift. This circuit uses a pair JFETs,
