All of these share a feature with… Output current can toggle between large and small (Switching  Digital logic; create 0s and 1s) Small change in ‘valve’ (3rd terminal) creates Large change in output between 1st and 2nd terminal (Amplification  Analog applications; Turn 0.5  50)

Aim of this chapter How can we get ‘Gain’? What is the structure of the device to get gain? What is the equation for gain? How can we use this equation to maximize gain? How can we model this device as a circuit element? What are its AC characteristics and speed?

Recall p-n junction

So if we combine these by fusing their terminals…PNWVappl > 0-+Holes from P region (“Emitter”) of 1st PN junction driven by FB of 1st PN junction into central N region (“Base”) Driven by RB of 2nd PN junction from Base into P region of 2nd junction (“Collector”) 1st region FB, 2nd RB If we want to worry about holes alone, need P+ on 1st region For holes to be removed by collector, base region must be thin
