J-FET, J201 replacement

Hi,

Can anyone suggest an alternative for the J201 J-FET.
It looks like it is not produced anymore.

Hope you can help

They're still available, so perhaps it's time to stock up. I grabbed a bulk lot of 100 at Element 14 recently when I heard, they are getting a bit low though. They're cheaper there than Mouser who still have plenty, over 8000 of J201_D74Z for example...

The J201 is still being produced by both Linear Systems and InterFET. Unfortunately, Fairchild the main producer of the device deleted the through hole version of it last year.

This does mean that the main component suppliers will run out at some point. Mouser does have quite a few at the moment. As do some of the smaller guitar parts shops, for example:

Linear Systems' parts can be obtained either directly in the US or from their various distributors overseas. In the UK you can get them here:

I am now selling the J201 for all projects that need them; ie. Deep Equinoxe, COTA and the TM3030. However, the parts are only available to those who buy the boards so I can keep track on stocks.
