Author reply to a reader question
A reader, James Swonger, had commented offsite with this message:

"Did not enjoy the "cutesy" presentation, and I think the article misperceives the purpose of gate resistors--they are for drain slew rate control, not "stability"

The author, Aaron Schultz, replied:

Some people have voiced love of the cuteness, some have lambasted it. 

The internet is the great equalizer.

 

After the fact becomes clear than other factors should have been thrown in to indicate more positively how to employ those resistors, for example:

 

- Drain slew control (per Mr. Swonger)

- Dampening of high frequency resonance

 

The article's discussion of gate resistors stems not so much from how resistors stabilize things (obviously they don't as such), but from the perspective of an engineer who is learning.  It is easy to know when you know.  Then any sort of fumble seems like a rookie mistake.  That is exactly the point.  The young engineer manages to discover, in fact, that the resistor can DEstabilize the circuit.  He is then the wiser for a sort of practice-gone-bad.

I have received an invitation by ROHM to a Paddock Tour which will be held at the venue of Formula E in their Brooklyn, New York race on July 12. This is part of the eventís worldwide racing tour.
High voltage, high speed with high slew rate with low noise are not all easy parameters to achieve in a single amplifier
Todayís circuit designers usually will need to design with analog circuitry on their boards, even if the core circuitry is Processor-based or a power supply design, MEMS/sensor or such. The
Hansler told me that there is one extended-length flex cable that powers the Roverís mast.
There are cases where a well-characterized source of noise with no other signal is entirely the desired output.
