Four Modes in BJT Mode Base junction Collector junction V BE V BC V CE Forward Active Forward bias Reverse bias npn: small + large + large + pnp: small - large - large - Inverted Active Reverse bias Forward bias npn: large + small + large - pnp: large - small - large + Saturation Forward bias Forward bias npn: small + small + small + pnp: small - small - small - Cutoff Reverse bias Reverse bias npn: large - large + unsure pnp: large + large - unsure Words of caution: in MOSFET, when both S and D junctions are forward biased: linear, S forward and D reverse: saturation!!

Forward Active npn: Large Signal This is the similar mode to the MOSFET saturation , where a large g m or current gain can be obtained: the main output current ( I C ) is mainly a function of the input voltage V BE , less for V CE .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
