Introduction: The objective of this experiment is to analyze the BJT transistor, the base-emitter pn-junction and the base-collector pn-junction. This was done by using the Tektronix Model 571 Curve Tracer. Another objective was to characterize the transistor by using a power supply and Keithley Model 175 DMM.
