EEVblog #611 – Electret Microphone Design


Part 5 – Doug Ford explains the design of Electret Microphone circuits, and all the associated traps:
Transconductance, correct biasing, and temperature effects, leaky JFETS, non-linear clipping & headroom, current noise and voltage noise, and pseudo bias resistors.
Also, the non-intuitive concept of higher resistance = less noise, and how this applies to electret biasing.
And what is a soggy circuit board and why is it important?
