# Transistors

They are unidirectional current carrying devices with capability to control the current flowing through them The switch current can be controlled by either current or voltage Bipolar Junction Transistors (BJT) control current by current Field Effect Transistors (FET) control current by voltage They can be used either as switches or as amplifiers

## BJT in Active Region

Common Emitter(CE) Connection Called CE because emitter is common to both VBB and VCC

## BJT in Active Region (2)

Base Emitter junction is forward biased Base Collector junction is reverse biased For a particular iB, iC is independent of RCC transistor is acting as current controlled current source (iC is controlled by iB, and iC = iB) Since the base emitter junction is forward biased, from Shockley equation
VBE iC = I CS exp VT 1
7

## Early Effect and Early Voltage

As reverse-bias across collector-base junction increases, width of the collector-base depletion layer increases and width of the base decreases (base-width modulation). In a practical BJT, output characteristics have a positive slope in forwardactive region; collector current is not independent of vCE. Early effect: When output characteristics are extrapolated back to point of zero iC, curves intersect (approximately) at a common point vCE = -VA which lies between 15 V and 150 V. (VA is named the Early voltage) Simplified equations (including Early effect):

## BJT in Active Region (3)

Normally the above equation is never used to calculate iC, iB Since for all small signal transistors vBE 0.7. It is only useful for deriving the small signal characteristics of the BJT. For example, for the CE connection, iB can be simply calculated as, V VBE i B = BB R BB

## Deriving BJT Operating points in Active Region An Example

In the CE Transistor circuit shown earlier VBB= 5V, RBB= 107.5 k, RCC = 1 k, VCC = 10V. Find IB,IC,VCE, and the transistor power dissipation using the characteristics as shown below By Applying KVL to the base emitter circuit

By using this equation along with the iC / vCE characteristics of the base collector junction, iC = 4 mA, VCE = 6V = I C 4mA = = 100 I B 40A

0 20V vCE

Transistor power dissipation = VCEIC = 24 mW We can also solve the problem without using the characteristics 11 if and VBE values are known

## BJT in Cutoff Region

Under this condition iB= 0 As a result iC becomes negligibly small Both base-emitter as well base-collector junctions may be reverse biased Under this condition the BJT can be treated as an off switch

12

## BJT in Saturation Region

Under this condition iC / iB < in active region Both base emitter as well as base collector junctions are forward biased VCE 0.2 V Under this condition the BJT can be treated as an on switch

13

## BJT in Saturation Region (2)

A BJT can enter saturation in the following ways (refer to the CE circuit) For a particular value of iB, if we keep on increasing RCC For a particular value of RCC, if we keep on increasing iB For a particular value of iB, if we replace the transistor with one with higher

## BJT in Saturation Region Example 1

In the CE Transistor circuit shown earlier VBB= 5V, RBB= 107.5 k, RCC = 10 k, VCC = 10V. Find IB,IC,VCE, and the transistor power dissipation using the characteristics as shown below Here even though IB is still 40 A; from the output characteristics, IC can be found to be only about 1mA and VCE 0.2V( VBC 0.5V or base collector junction is forward biased (how?))
iC 10 mA 100 A 80 A 60 A 40 A 20 A 0 20V vCE

## BJT in Saturation Region Example 2

In the CE Transistor circuit shown earlier VBB= 5V, RBB= 43 k, RCC = 1 k, VCC = 10V. Find IB,IC,VCE, and the transistor power dissipation using the characteristics as shown below Here IB is 100 A from the input characteristics; IC can be found to be only about 9.5 mA from the output characteristics and VCE 0.5V( VBC 0.2V or base collector junction is forward biased (how?)) = IC / IB = 9.5 mA/100 A = 95 < 100 Transistor power dissipation = VCEIC 4.7 mW Note: In this case the BJT is not in very hard saturation

## BJT in Saturation Region Example 3

In the CE Transistor circuit shown earlier VBB= 5V, VBE = 0.7V RBB= 107.5 k, RCC = 1 k, VCC = 10V, = 400. Find IB,IC,VCE, and the transistor power dissipation using the characteristics as shown below By Applying KVL to the base emitter circuit IB = VBB VBE = 40A R BB

Then IC = IB= 400*40 A = 16000 A and VCE = VCC-RCC* IC =10- 0.016*1000 = -6V(?) But VCE cannot become negative (since current can flow only from collector to emitter). Hence the transistor is in saturation
18

## BJT in Saturation Region Example 3(2)

Hence VCE 0.2V IC = (10 0.2) /1 = 9.8 mA Hence the operating = 9.8 mA / 40 A = 245

## BJT Q Point (Bias Point)

Q point means Quiescent or Operating point Very important for amplifiers because wrong Q point selection increases amplifier distortion Need to have a stable Q point, meaning the the operating point should not be sensitive to variation to temperature or BJT , which can vary widely

## Four-Resistor Bias Network for BJT: Design Objectives

We know that
IE = V EQ V BE R EQ I B RE V EQ V BE RE for R EQ I B << (V EQ V BE )

This implies that IB << I2, so that I1 = I2. So base current doesnt disturb voltage divider action. Thus, Q-point is independent of base current as well as current gain. Also, VEQ is designed to be large enough that small variations in the assumed value of VBE wont affect IE. Current in base voltage divider network is limited by choosing I2 IC/5. This ensures that power dissipation in bias resistors is < 17 % of total quiescent power consumed by circuit and I2 >> IB for > 50.
