The BJT transistor is a three-terminal device that can be used for amplification, switching, or saturation. It is operated in the active region by forward biasing the base-emitter junction and reverse biasing the base-collector junction. The transistor is a current control device that can be used to amplify or switch current.

  • 00:00:00 The bipolar junction transistor, or BJT, is a three-terminal semiconductor device that can act as a conductor or insulator based on the applied input signal. This property makes the transistor useful in digital electronics and as an amplifier in analog electronics.
  • 00:05:00 The BJT is a type of transistor that is used for amplification, switching, and saturation in different regions of operation. The active region of operation is where the base emitter junction is forward biased and the base collector junction is reverse biased. The gain provided by the BJT is very little, and is usually avoided due to this. Similarly, the PNP transistor can be operated in the active region if the emitter voltage is greater than the base voltage and the base voltage is greater than the collector voltage.
  • 00:10:00 This video introduces the BJT transistor, which is a type of semiconductor device used to amplify or switch current. The junction between the emitter and base regions is biased so that the electrons from the emitter are pushed towards the base region, and the collector current flows in the opposite direction.
  • 00:15:00 The BJT is a current control device that can control the collector current. By controlling the input current, it is possible to control the output current.
