A BJT acts like an open switch when it operates in the cutoff region. In figure 7, you can see that the npn BJT is operating in the cutoff region since the voltage at the base terminal is 0V. Therefore, the base-emitter junction is not forward-biased and if we will not consider the leakage current, all of the currents, I B and I C are zero BJT: Three Regions of Operation Depending on the biasing, the BJT can be operated in three regions. 1) Active region, 2) Cut-Off region 3) Saturation region. In case of the active region of operation, emitter-base junction is forward biased while the collector-base junction is reverse biased When transistor is used for switching purposes, it works in either cut-off or saturation mode. In active region, the base and collector currents satisfy the condition (DC Current gain. Ratio of absolute values). is a constant for a particular transistor, which varies from to for different transistors When the BJT is operating in the cutoff region, then it could be used like an open switch while if it is operating in the saturation region, the BJT could be used as a closed switch. The BJT can be also used as an amplifier if you properly bias it to operate in the active or linear region. I hope you've found this tutorial interesting or helpful Then bipolar transistors have the ability to operate within three different regions: • 1. Active Region - the transistor operates as an amplifier and . Ic = β.Ib • • 2. Saturation -the transistor is fully ON operating as a switch and . Ic = I(saturation) • • 3. Cut-off -the transistor is fullyOFF operating as a switch and . Ic = 0. Typical Bipolar Transistor
Cutoff mode In the cutoff mode, both the junctions of the transistor (emitter to base and collector to base) are reverse biased. In other words, if we assume two p-n junctions as two p-n junction diodes, both the diodes are reverse biased in cutoff mode. We know that in reverse bias condition, no current flows through the device In this region, the BE junction is forward bias and CB junction is reverse bias. BJT is used as an amplifier or as a series pass transistor in the voltage regulator in this region and the dynamic resistance is very large. 3. Quasi-saturation region: In this region, the BJT operates at high frequency. Both junctions are forward bias A bipolar junction transistor (BJT) is a type of transistor that uses both electrons and electron holes as charge carriers.In contrast, a unipolar transistor, such as a field-effect transistor, uses only one kind of charge carrier.A bipolar transistor allows a small current injected at one of its terminals to control a much larger current flowing between two other terminals, making the device.
History of Bipolar Junction Transistors. The transistor (BJT) was not the first three terminal devices. Before transistors came into existence vacuum tubes were used. In electronics, vacuum tube triodes were used almost for half a century before the BJT's.The light bulb invented by Thomas Edison in the early 1880's was one of the first uses of vacuum tubes for any electrical applications How does a BJT act as a switch? A transistor has three modes: active region, cut off region and the saturation region. The transistor acts as a switch in the cut-off mode and the saturation mode. The transistor is fully off in the cutoff region and fully on the saturation region. DA: 39 PA: 55 MOZ Rank: 80. BJT as Switch - The Engineering Knowledg The output characteristics of BJT can be divided into three areas - cut-off, saturation and active region. In the cut-off region both collector-base and emitter-base pn-junctions are reverse-biased - transistor is off.
