By completing the BJT Lab in ABACUS - Assembly of Basic Applications for Coordinated Understanding of Semiconductors, users will be able to understand a) BJT (Bipolar Junction Transistor) operation (npn and pnp type) in Common Emitter and Common Base modes, and b) the concept of early voltage, base width modulation and Gummel Plot. Users will also learn how to design and study their own BJT structures.
The specific objectives of the BJT Lab are:
Users who are new to the operation of BJT should consult the following resources:
