The collector—base junction is reverse biased in normal operation. Small changes in the voltage applied across the base—emitter terminals cause the current between the emitter and the collector to change significantly.
This applied voltage causes the lower P-N junction to ‘turn on’, allowing a flow of electrons from the emitter sog the base. Transistor Manual 6th ed. Potentiometer digital Variable capacitor Varicap.

This barrier arrangement helps reduce minority carrier injection from the base when the emitter-base junction is under forward bias, and thus reduces base current and increases emitter injection efficiency.
Because the base current is approximately proportional to the collector and emitter currents, they vary in the same way.

July Learn how and when to remove this template message. When the device is in forward active or forward saturated mode, the arrow, placed on the emitter leg, points in the direction of the conventional bcc557.

gc557 For a figure describing forward and reverse bias, see semiconductor diodes. In addition to normal breakdown ratings of 32 device, power BJTs are subject to a failure mode called secondary breakdownin which excessive current and normal imperfections in the silicon die cause portions of the silicon inside the device to become disproportionately hotter than the others.
In analog circuit design, the current-control view is sometimes used because it is approximately linear. The incidental low performance BJTs inherent in CMOS ICs, however, are often utilized as bandgap voltage referencesilicon bandgap temperature sensor and to handle electrostatic discharge. BJTs can be thought of as voltage-controlled current sourcesbut are more simply characterized as slt current sources, or current amplifiers, due to the low impedance at the base.
Retrieved from ” https: For common-emitter mode the various symbols take on the specific values as:. As shown in the diagram, the emitter current, I Eis the total transistor current, which is the sum of the other terminal currents, i. This ratio usually has a value close to unity; between 0. It is typically greater than 50 for small-signal transistors, but can be smaller in transistors designed for bc557 applications.
The thermal runaway process associated with secondary breakdown, once triggered, occurs almost instantly and may catastrophically ssot the transistor package.
A small current leaving the base is amplified in the collector output.
Jan 31, 2. Silicon bandgap temperature sensor. The modes of operation can be described in terms of the applied voltages this description applies to NPN transistors; polarities are reversed for PNP transistors:. The heavy doping of the emitter region and light doping of the base region causes many more electrons to be injected from the emitter into the base than holes to be injected from the base into the emitter.
When the base—collector voltage reaches a certain device-specific value, the base—collector depletion region boundary meets the base—emitter depletion region boundary. A Baker clamp can prevent the transistor from heavily saturating, which reduces the amount of charge stored in the base and thus improves switching time. Common emitter Common collector Common base. In active mode, the electric field existing between base and collector caused by V CE will cause the majority of these electrons to cross the upper P-N junction into the collector to form the collector current I C.
Ebers—Moll model for an NPN transistor. You can help by adding to it. The BJT is also the choice for demanding analog circuits, especially for very-high-frequency applications, such as radio-frequency circuits for wireless systems.
This section needs expansion. Common source Common drain Common gate.
Transistors can be thought of as two sto P—N junctions sharing a common region that minority carriers can move through. In addition, higher doping in the base can improve figures of merit like the Early voltage by lessening base narrowing.
In a PNP transistor, the emitter—base region is forward biased, so holes are injected into the base as minority carriers. The junction version known as the bipolar junction transistor BJTinvented by Shockley in was for three decades the device of choice in the design of discrete and integrated circuits.
For high current gain, most of the carriers injected into the emitter—base junction must come from the emitter. For example, in the typical grounded-emitter configuration of an NPN BJT used as a pulldown switch in digital logic, the “off” state never involves a reverse-biased junction because the base voltage never goes below ground; nevertheless the forward bias is close enough to zero that essentially no current flows, so this end of the forward active region can be regarded as the cutoff region.
The proportion of electrons able to cross the base and reach the collector is a measure of the BJT efficiency. In the more traditional BJT, also referred to as homojunction BJT, the efficiency of carrier injection from the emitter to the base is primarily determined by the doping ratio between the emitter and base, which means the base must be lightly doped to obtain high injection efficiency, making its resistance relatively high.
Jan 31, 3. A BJT consists of three differently doped semiconductor regions: Another model commonly used to analyze BJT circuits is the h-parameter model, closely related to the hybrid-pi model and the y-parameter two-portbut using input current and output voltage as independent variables, rather than input and output voltages.
Jan 31, 1. SiGe Heterojunction Bipolar Transistors.
Charge flow in a BJT is due to diffusion of charge carriers across a junction between two regions of different charge concentrations.
