DC Transistor Circuits What happens in a transistor is a small base (B) current results in a large collector (C) current. The collector current is dependent on the base current. The transistor base current is amplified in the collector current. Because there are diode junctions, there is a voltage drop associated with the base to emitter junction. This suggests that the DC transistor can be represented with the model shown below: 1 + NPN PNP

Working with Fig. 3.44(b) KCL Node 1: (0.7 2)/100k + 0.7/200k + I B = 0 I B = 9.5 μ A KCL Node 2: 150 I B + ( v o 16)/1000 = 0 v o = 16 1000 (150)(9.5 μ A) = 14.575 V Which was easier? The nodal method. Next we will discuss these topics:
