Swapnil Agrawal - 210049237 2 INTRODUCTION 1. 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. 2. AIM The purpose of this experiment is for you to become familiar with the operating characteristics of the transistor. APPARATUS a) Agilent 33120A function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator b) Agilent 3630A Triple Output DC Power Supply c) Tektronix TDS200 Digital Storage Oscilloscope (DSO) d) Breadboard, Resistors and 2N3904 (NPN) 2N3906 (PNP) Transistor.

    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.
