Hello, For a while now I've been wondering what the maximum transistor switching speed would be. Today I tried a google but now clear answer came up, so I will try to come up/calculate an answer myself. I share it with you for feedback/verifieing/finding any mistakes I made. For now I will ignore heat problems and other kinds of problems for example someday somebody might want to...

Trying to drum up some interest in bipolar transistor database. Have been proof-reading the contents for some time now. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300750687460 Not completely finished, but trying to drum up some interest. For those interested, there's an un-proofed list of SMD designators (well, the bipolar transistor lines are 85% checked) there too. RL

The circuit linked below appears to be a conversion of a three stage inverting tube amp tube to a transistor circuit, powered by 3VDC. https://app.box.com/s/dwflbolnqe58ra9c1kssqjuq14dulxo0 It appears to be intended to capture high frequency ambient signals and re-broadcast them. It may also be designed to self-oscillate to add a carrier wave. In any case, I would like to build it o...

I built a 2-switch forward converter, whcih worked OK but the IGBT switches (IRG4BC20U) failed after a few months (probably because of inadequate heatsinking). WHen I replaced them I must have indavertently stripped the track on the gate of the upper transistor. This made the gate float. When I powered up, it worked at low output but near the max load the upper transistor got fried and the fuse...

Hi, My Peugeot 406 heater blower control module ceased to work the other day, and its power transistor is open. Must be an NPN since it is supposed to PWM the blower motor to earth (-12V). When searching N344* I find a lot of references to 2N344n.. (2N3440, 2N3442... etc) but not this the exact version. I've uploaded an image of the 'fat' case here: http://kuntigi.net/download/N34...

Hi A while back there was an interesting topic about a 2 transistor Buck LED driver: https://groups.google.com/d/topic/sci.electronics.design/BEle8XLEI-I/discussion I tried the LT Spice simulation, but it just runs in linear mode, no switching. Do anyone remember this thread and why it does not run? Tom Swift had the same problem in the original thread: Qoute I changed R1 to 5.1 ...

1 transistor negative resistance circuit Now working! http://panteltje.com/pub/neg_res_3.gif Note the dip around the middle of the screen. Was wondering 'must be possible'. Solution came to me: Opto coupler. Just put in some resistors, you can do better with other values and other zeners, these are 4.7 V zeners, lowest my spice has. Normally the opto's diode goes on via R2 and R6...

Current mirror is inevitable part of input stage of operational amplifiers. Current mirror behaves almost as perfect current source in small current signals application and it has excellent characteristic for bipolar transistor biasing.

A metal insulator gelatin (MIG) transistor is proposed today for my kitchen. The MIG structure forms an enhancement mode field effect transistor using an aluminum gate, plastic wrap insulator, over a doped jello substrate. The source and drain are doped with salt while the channel is doped with baking soda. Differential signaling is planned so that leakages are nulled at the LED load. Diod...

I'm working on a small circuit that will be powered by a 9V battery. I would like to combine the functions of a soft power switch and reverse battery protection in a single device. I think the answer may be to use a PNP transistor on the high side, with a base resistor to ground - actually to ground through a physical momentary switch, or indirectly to ground via an NPN transistor cont...

Even though mechanisms that makes bipolar transistor run are quite complicated and there are many side effect to be covered, simple analysis is possible with two simple models: one for active regime, when we use one independent voltage source to model base-emitter p-n junction and one current controlled current source to model collector-emitter junction. Another is model of bipolar
