Swapnil Agrawal Lab 7 - 210049237 2 INTRODUCTION 1. Background The transistor, 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 main functions of transistors are as switches and amplifiers. The common emitter amplifier increases amplitude of the voltage from an input signal. Since, there is input and output, there is also some gain (which is the ratio of the power going out to the power coming in) 2. AIM The purpose of this lab is to understand the properties of the transistor as an amplifier. 3. APPARATUS a) Agilent 33120A function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator b) Agilent E3630A Triple Output DC Power Supply c) Agilent 34401A Digital Multimeter d) Breadboard, Resistors, Capacitors and 2N3904 (NPN).

    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.
