    I really need to share some bad news which I dont want to belive ,Im still trying to know if there is any hope.Today the doctors said to my sister that basis the exams and clinics she will spent the rest of her life on wheelchair.The left side of the body is paralysed (as I told yesterday evaluation 4 on the foot and 2 on the knee-left side).I need to know if these parametres are definitive ,if there is any possibilities or cases where people got recovery after 7 week post injury or spinal shock ends by this time and sequences are definitive .I m sorry maybe Im bothering you but this hurts so much.What I see is my sister laying moves her hips,moves her knees and feet,yes left side more weak but does by time gets stronger ...I dont know

    Dear Cajun
    While walking she had small support by supporting on the showlders of two nurses (her left arm is very weak,and right arm and hand almost 80 % normal strength),while walking she faced dizzines (vertigo).But also the removal of urine cathether to me seems a step forward.We'll be in touch thank you very much for informations.I Keep hoping for progress,Let me know on the 7 ,8th weeks post injury did progress advanced in your case

    Today she made 7 steps ,after that low blood pressure and I dont know if its normally in the beginening of walking but body is not kept kompletely straight(the hips are a bit like behind, sorry I dont know how to explain it in english,hope you understand what I mean.The evaluation of the muscular strenght in the right leg is 5,and the left leg 2-4,Please let me know if you faced similar walking in the beginening.Also the urine cathether is removed,she is able to control miction.Please any information if you know much about first steps and this kind of progress in the 2nd day of the 7th week post injury.Warmest regards

    Hello cajun,
    It looks like P-channel fets becoming rare. oh well, I will go with BJTs. Thanks for the help.

    Thank you for informing me. I dont want to bother you but if you have time please answer.Since you are a member for long in this forum of HOPE,please let me know if you have readen anywhere that somebody walked after suffering something similar c4 c5 c6 injury as my sister and experienced first movements at 4 week.
    Does these voluntary finger,foot,arm movements in the firsT day of the fifth week after injury give a hope for walking again.
    My sister was intubated for 3 weeks,she could breath by her own just 20%,After step by step on the fourth week she is completely having her own breathing without any support.my.Initially my sister was diagnosed ASIA A,yesterday doctors said that diagnosis doesnt stands anymore but didnt gave yet any other.Today she is moving her right leg from the toes to the upper part (muscle quadriceps femoris),her right arm has all the movements its just a weak,and in the left side there are slight voluntary movements.All the best

    Thank you very much for your respond.Its just a most difficult time and suffering trying to find a light of hope.I pray God my sister goes your way.She is most beautiful and most energic girl that i know.As I told you until 4 weeks after accident just the right arm was moving.Suddenly 4 weeks after injury she has voluntary movements from knees down to the feet -and weak movements on the left arm,she also got weak movements of the fingers in both hands.The right hand it looks just normal movements.What I m really conecerned to know did you experienced Low blood pressure.In this fifth week after injury my sister is showing movements but everytime when nurses try to put her on wheelchair the blood pressure goes very low,
    I am new in this forum and really appreciate for information regarding prognosis ,from you or somebody who underwent in similar steps with movements from most of the muscles 4 weeks after injury.Wish you the best ,happines and joy.

    On 24 .March 2012 My sister 26 years old suffered traffic accident with C4 C5 C6 neck vertebrae broken.After accident just the right arm showed some movements and reaction.Doctors classificaied her as Complete tetraplegia ASI A.She underwent two surgeries for spine stabilization.For the first three weeks after accident there was no improvement.On the fourth week my sister started moving voluntary both foot fingers,both forefoot and slight movements on left arm.Doctors are not giving any answer just we have to wait and there is some progress.I was happy to hear your life story please let me know about how movements started,I really wish,hope and I really pray my sister walks again.Sorry if my english is poor please write me back

  11. foton,
    I took a look at the file, but I don't see any P channel FETs. It is a little difficult to tell because they don't give much data so I looked for datasheets online. All of the ones that I found were N type. Frankly, I am somewhat surprised that there doesn't seem to be a good substitute made now. I have found several instances of others doing this same search without success.

    Hello cajun,
    May i ask you for another favour? I have forgotten about one more semiconductor firm. The name is Central Semiconductor Corporation. They do make P and N-channel FETs. I did try to compare their parameters to 2SJ74 and 2SK170, but it is very criptic for me. It looks like they do make them in two package styles: leaded and smaller SOT23F. The latter one is small, but I think I still can solder it with no problems. This is url: http://www.centralsemi.com/
    Would you find a moment to look there?

    OK, I am unable to figure out how to attach the file. I can not find on their website the file which thery sent to me either. This is url to their jfets:
    http://am.renesas.com/products/discr..._fet/index.jsp
    It is strange they only have 4 of them

    Thanks a lot !!!!! Let me figure out how to send the PDF file.
    I am unable to attached the file. No attach option available in Private Message or send e-mail screens. The only attached option is on response screen on regular forum. But, I am not able to attach the pdf file anyway. I am getting missing security token message. Strange

    Hello, may I ask another question? I have contacted Renesas. I am not sure the origin of the firm, it is an American firm. It looks like they took over production of some semiconductors from Toshiba. Mostly the ones, which were discontinued by the latter one. I asked them about 2SK170 and 2SJ74 jfet transistors. The gentelman whom I talked to said they might have suitable replacement, but they do not make 2SJ74 direct equivalent. He sent me PDF file with products and information about them. Would it be possible for you to check it? I will build Hiraga 20W one with BJT transistors, but I would also like to experiment with Le Monstre, which uses jefets for input transistors. Please let me know you will have time to check for me.
    Regards.

    Thanks for all your help. I will check what I have at home. I have lots of samples in few junk bins.

    It looks like the problem is with input transistors. It is being recommended to use the listed ones, which are: 2SA782 and 2SC1775. The are also obsolete and exsiting ones are expensive. Would BC549/BC559 work in this position? I think they are still available. I need to check with Mouser electronics.

    All listed transistors here are obsolete. They can be found, but they are expensive. People recommend these replacements as driver/output transistors: MJ11022/23 or MJ11024/25 and MJE15030/31 MJE15032/33. I should have them. Would Sankens work in this curcuit as output transistors?

    Hello cajun,
    I have made a little bit of a mess here. I want to build Hiraga for the past......8 years. This is the last time I have seen the schematic. Really, Hiraga designed two amps: "Le Monstre" which is also known as 8W one, and Hiraga 20W known as Class A. The 8W one has jfet input transistors where 20W one has BJTs. I forgot about 20W one. This is the one which I want to build. I will try to send you schematic through PM. One of the reasons I forgot about it is the website of the guy who posted it is down. But, I was able to find it.

    It looks like there are problems with 2Sj74 JFET transistor. Is out of production. They are available on e-bay, which is not my favourite source. If I remember correctly one of the first Hiraga schematics used BJT transistors at the input. Is it possible to use BJTs and preserve sound quality of this amp?

    Yes, they are kind of big. But, they might look very cool: http://www.soundfood.net/2008/01/24/...ffle-speakers/

    Thanks for the link. That will be my future project. You have mentioned before speaker design. Have you built open baffle ones?

    Which type of amplifier fast Sanken transistors can be used in?
  25. View Conversation
    Yes, BOZ is one of the pre-amps which I want to build. I am recently interested in simplified circuits for audio. Pass designed two more circuits which I want to try based on 2Sk170 jfet. One is BOZ version based on JFET and one is here: http://www.enjoythemusic.com/diy/070...eamplifier.htm
    And here is more info about behavour of BOZ:
