Background The bipolar junction transistor (BJT), like the diode, utilizes the property of the PN junction in a semiconductor. Unlike the diode, the transistor is a three-port device (with the three ports referred to as the Base (B), Collector (C), and Emitter (E). The collector and the emitter regions are similarly doped (either p-type or n-type) while the base is oppositely doped. Hence there are two types of transistors - so called NPN and PNP transistors. Objective The purpose of this experiment is for us to become familiar with the operating characteristics of the transistors. Apparatus Model Description Agilent E3630A Triple Output DC Power Supply Provides a direct current power supply. Agilent 33120A Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator A waveform/function generator. Breadboard, resistors and 2N3904 (NPN) 2N3906 (PNP) Transistor. Procedure Please see the lab manual.

    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.
