    What is BF in transistor model ?

    I simulated ( Multisim ) circuit and checked transistor model I found that in transistors model's description. I noticed BF in description what is it? Is it beta ? If it's same with beta why in model BF is constant when beta not constant? For example : .MODEL 2N2222_Multisim npn +IS=1.87573e-15...

    Switching function of both BJT and Mosfet

    Both of this graph show mosfet and but in switching mode As i look at the graph below I notice for mosfet the drain source amplitude is higher than the gate voltage amplitude . However , bjt , collector voltage amplitude is only reach at the same amplitude of base voltage amplitude. From this...

    BJT Multistage Amplifier (Cascaded)

    I had been trying to create a BJT Multistage Amplifier circuit which had a total voltage gain of -40. The problem is whenever I tried to calculate the value starting from the total voltage gain it always goes wrong and totally different comparing the simulations and calculations. Anyone can help...

    Operational amplifier MOSFET vs BJT

    Hello, I have a question regarding operational amplifiers. Whenever I search for some datasheets of high gain and high-speed Op Amps ( BW higher than 50MHz), I mostly find that they are made of bipolar transistors rather than mosfet. Why is it so? I've done some research and I've found that...

    mesh current analysis in bjt circuits

    How to use mesh current analysis instead of thevenin's theorem here to solve for all currents and voltages in the following bjt circuit? How should i make the closed loops in order to analyse?

    NAND gate TTL - How it works

    Hello, I am studying digital electronics and I am a bit confused about the saturation conditions of the bjt. I knew that the bjt saturates when the Vce is close to 0 and Vbe >= 0.7. However, when I was reading about TTL I got confused. Can someone give me some intuition and explain me why in the...

    Why did my transistor work?

    Hi guys, I designed a simple circuit here to use an Arduino Pro mini controlling a heater rod for my personal project. My heater rod is rated at 24V, 25W. I'm controlling the heater rod using a BJT transistor, FMMT617TA which is some leftover parts from my previous project. After I got my...

    Input & Output Impedances of Common Emitter BJT Amplifier

    I want to study about "finding Input & Output Impedances of Common Emitter BJT Amplifier" However, I could not find a decent source & document about it. Could someone supply me with some documents for that. Then that would be gorgeous for my study. Thanks :)

    Input and Output Impedance of the Common Emitter Amplifier

    Hi, I just have solved one of the bjt common emitter question below. However, I'm curious that how can I additionally find those things below: 1) Input and Output Impedance 2) AC Gain Here is the example and my hand draw solution. However, the question only asked to find Vout/Vin... Also, my...

    Why the ratio of Ic/Ib on BJT is not constant?

    Hi. The schematic of amplifier using BJT and the result is attached. What I learned is that the beta, ratio of Ic/Ib, would be constant. However, the ratio of Ic/Ib varies by the time. I googled for this and found out that the beta varies with temperature and Ic but does it vary that much...

    What is Cmeu in an npn BJT operating in saturation mode ?

    I know Cmeu is parasitic capacitance in active mode. It's the B-C junction capacitance. But does it change when the npn is operating in saturation mode? Also in general(not just in saturation mode) what happens to Cmeu at increasing Vce? Does it increase? What other things happen to the...

    Do we select a large or small BJT to amplify high frequency response?

    Part of me thinks we need a smaller BJT, to reduce base emitter junction area. but I am confused

    NPN BJT Emitter Follower - supply at Collector Current (Ic).?

    Greetings everyone, I am planning to design a current amplifier using an NPN BJT Transistor with an Emitter Follower configuration. On top of that, instead of using batteries, I am using 2 separate LDO voltage outputs as the input voltage(Vin/Vbb) to the BJT as well as the supply voltage...
