Frequently Asked Questions

InterFET’s main focus is JFET based products! We are committed to delivering JFET solutions when others are discontinuing their products. InterFET Corporation has gained the reputation of providing the best JFETs for many specialty applications requiring very low noise performance. This is supported by recommendations from scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and various universities working with low-noise electronics. InterFET is mentioned by name in the literature for many experiments conducted at CERN, Fermi Labs, and the former Superconducting Super-Collider project. Most of these applications gain enhanced noise performance by operation at cooled temperatures, which often reveals the purity of the materials and processes used in the construction of the JFET. This is very important to noise performance, a key attribute of junction FETs.
