The generation-recombination noise of junction-gate field-effect transistors is calculated taking into account the variable mobility. The field dependence of mobility suggested by Trofimenkoff is used, and the resultant spectral intensity of the drain-noise fluctuations shows no signs of a logarithmic singularity at saturation. The need for any cutoff procedure to remove the logarithmic singularity at saturation is therefore removed, and it is thus an improvement over earlier methods.
