Small changes in the voltage applied across the base—emitter terminals og the current between the emitter and the collector to change significantly.

These current sources depend on the current through each diode.

Bipolar Junction Transistors

In analog circuit design, the current-control view is sometimes used because it is approximately linear. Two techniques are used to reduce the turn-off delay: The parameters I E,sI C,sa F and a R are the saturation currents of the base-emitter and base collector diode and the forward and reverse transport factors.

Common source Common drain Common gate. The electrons in the base are called minority carriers because the base is doped p-type, which makes holes the majority carrier in the base.

Bipolar junction transistor

Next, we need to find the emitter efficiency and base transport factor. Now coming to important question of Why two back to back diodes cannot function as a transistor? We now turn our attention to the recombination current in the quasi-neutral base and obtain it from the continuity equation 2. This gain is usually or more, but robust circuit designs do not depend on the exact value for example see op-amp.


The carrier densities vary linearly between the boundary values as expected when using koll assumption that no significant recombination takes place in the quasi-neutral regions. The remainder of the electrons recombine with holes, the majority carriers in the base, making a current through the base if to form the base current, I B. Simplified modwl section of a planar NPN bipolar junction transistor.

The minority carrier densities on both sides of the base-collector depletion region equal the thermal equilibrium values since V BC was set to zero. The hybrid-pi model is a popular circuit model used for analyzing the small signal behavior if bipolar junction and field effect transistors. For the specific case where the base-emitter and base-collector voltage are the same and the base doping is uniform, there can be no minority carrier diffusion in the base so that: Two commonly used HBTs are silicon—germanium and aluminum gallium arsenide, though a wide variety of semiconductors may be used for the HBT structure.

For Eberss conditions they are specified in upper-case.

The Ebers-Moll model is an ideal model for a bipolar transistor, which can be used, in the forward active mode of operation, in the reverse active mode, in saturation and in cut-off.

The collector diode is reverse-biased so I CD is virtually zero.

Structure and use of NPN transistor. It is obvious that this is not the case with the transistor in active region because of the internal design of transistor. F is from forward current amplification also called eners current gain. If the emitter-base junction is reverse bjr into avalanche or Zener mode and charge flows for a short period of time, the current gain of the BJT will be permanently degraded. The long minority-carrier lifetime and the long diffusion lengths in those materials justify the exclusion of recombination in the base or the depletion layer.

The base is physically located between the emitter and the collector and is made from lightly doped, high-resistivity material.

Chapter 5: Bipolar Junction Transistors

The quasi-neutral region width in the emitter is 1 m m and 0. The emitter current therefore equals the excess minority carrier charge present in the base region, divided by the time this charge spends in the base. It is convenient to rewrite the emitter current due to electrons, I E,nas a function of the total excess minority charge in the base, D Q n,B.

This section may be too technical for most readers to understand. Instead, they drift through the base-collector depletion region and end up as majority carriers in the collector region. Consider two diodes connected back to back in the configuration shown below. This is called conventional current. Usually the emitter is composed of a larger bandgap material than the base.

July Learn how and when to remove this template message. For a diode with voltage V applied between its terminals, the current flowing through the junction in terms of applied voltage between its terminals is given by. The resulting current gain, under such conditions, is:. The bipolar junction transistor, unlike other transistors, is usually not a symmetrical device.

All possible bias modes are illustrated with Figure 5. The Ebers-Moll model describes all of these bias modes.
