FET Vs BJT image

Difference between BJT and FET

BJT and FET both are made up of different semiconductor materials mainly P type and N type. These transistors are basically used for the designing of oscillators, amplifiers, and switches. In our last articles, we explain in detail how to use a transistor as a switch, amplifier and as an oscillator. Here we are going to explain in detail about FET and BJT basics, working and its difference. Bipolar Junction transistor: Bipolar transistor is a three terminal device formed by joining two individual signal diodes back to back, which will give us two PN junctions connected together in series that …

Darlington Transistor: Switch and configuration

We have already learned about main types of transistors and Transistor configuration. But there are many other transistors that are invented by the uses of Bipolar Transistors. One of them is Darlington Transistor. Here we are going to explain you Darlington transistor switch, its configuration, and applications in detail. Have a look over it. What is Darlington Transistor Darlington transistor consists of two bipolar transistors is connected in such a way that the current amplified by the first transistor is amplified further by the second one. This transistor was invented by Bell Laboratories engineer, Sidney Darlington in 1953. He introduced the …

Transistors Basics: Types, Terminologies and more [Guide]

You have heard many times about the term “Transistors” in your syllabus. And we have got emails from many students and other people to explain it in easy terms. So here we go. What is a Transistor? A Transistor is an electronic device used to control the flow of an electric current. These are the miniature brain cells of the computer and are made up of silicon, a chemical element generally found in sand. It consists of three layers of a semiconductor material, each capable of carrying a current. Generally, transistors are found in an enormous variety of electrical devices such as portable stereos, …
