Transistors and How They Work

Lecture no. 7 from the course: Understanding Modern Electronics

Transistors and How They Work

Taught by Professor Richard Wolfson | 34 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Transistors in all forms fundamentally do the same thing: they allow one electronic circuit to control another. Review the concept of electronic control, and study field effect transistors (FETs) as well as bipolar junction transistors (BJTs). See how the bipolar junction transistor can be used as a simple switch.

I've watched several lectures on BJTs, and Dr. Wolfson's explanation made it clear to me. Now, I understand that BJTs are best at amplifying current due to that coefficient "Betta (B)".
