4/19/2019 2 ©UWECE TC Chen EARLY EFFECT In a practical BJT, output characteristics have a positive slope in forward- active region; collector current is not independent of v CE . Early effect: When output characteristics are extrapolated back to point of zero i C , curves intersect (approximately) at a common point v CE = - V A which lies between 15 V and 150 V. (V A is named the Early voltage) Converge to a point ©UWECE TC Chen EARLY EFFECT while v CE increases, v BC decreases, the reverse-bias across collector- base junction increases, width of the collector-base depletion layer increases and width of the base decreases (base-width modulation). W b decreases Diffusion current also increases since concentration gradient increases E B C W BE W b W BC v CE v BC i C i B

### What students are saying

• 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.
