How to Troubleshoot Transistor (BJT) Circuits Correctly

BJT troubleshooting techniques is a huge topic and therefore including 100 % solutions and strategies can be perhaps difficult within a single article. Basically, the user should know about a handful of fundamental moves and measurements which may enable him to spotlight the location of the problem and help recognize the remedy. Quite certainly, the … Read moreHow to Troubleshoot Transistor (BJT) Circuits Correctly

BJT Common Collector Configuration

In our previous articles we have learned the other two transistor configurations, namely the common-base and the common-emitter. In this article we discuss the third and the final design which is called the common-collector configuration. The image of this configuration is shown below using the standard current flow directions and voltage notations: Why Common Collector … Read moreBJT Common Collector Configuration

Understanding Common Emitter Configuration in BJTs

By far the most commonly used transistor configuration can be seen in Fig. 3.13 below for both pnp and npn transistors. This configuration is known as common-emitter configuration because the emitter is common, or becomes the reference terminal to both the input and output stages (meaning common to both the base and collector terminals). Just … Read moreUnderstanding Common Emitter Configuration in BJTs

Understanding Common Base Configuration in BJTs

In this section we are going to analyze BJT common-base configuration, and learn regarding its driving point characteristics, reverse saturation current, base to emitter voltage and evaluate the parameters through a practical solved example. In the later parts we will also analyze how to configure a common-base amplifier circuit Introduction The symbols and annotations utilized … Read moreUnderstanding Common Base Configuration in BJTs

Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) – Construction, and Operational Details

How Bipolar Junction Transistor BJTs Evolved During 1904–1947, the vacuum tube was unquestionably the electronic device of great curiosity and growth. In 1904, the vacuum-tube diode was launched by J. A. Fleming. Soon afterwards, in 1906, Lee De Forest enhanced the device with a third feature, known as the control grid, producing the first amplifier, and … Read moreBipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) – Construction, and Operational Details
