    Hi All,

    This is seem to be a challenge to me.
    Can anyone let me know is there any possibility that i can convert MOSFET to BJT with all their functionality remaining the same.
    PLS do the needful

    Regarding the conversion of MOSFET to BJT I found in one thread saying by adding a zener diode we can convert the same... But I am not very sure of that solution.
    Pls do help me

    Can you replace a pig with a cow?

    Can you replace a vacuum tube with a BJT?

    Circuit, circuit, circuit.

    Show your circuit!

    Great analogy. Without more detail, most folks would say no. But there will be times when you can. It all depends on the details.

    No - I don`t think so.
    I think, no special considerations - with regard to details - are necessary to give the answer: No.
    Remember: The question was "with all their functionality remaining the same"
    Of course, you can replace a MOSFET in an amplifier circuit with a BJT to do - in principle - the same job: To amplify. However, as far as I understand, this was not the question.

    I'm inclined to agree, but without the context of what the OP was really asking about, we can only guess that we understand the question. A cow is not a pig. Both can be roasted over a fire to make a feast.

    There are simple cases, such as driving a relay or an LED, where a BJT or a MOSFET will work equally well.
    The real meaning of "all their functionality" is the key to this question.
