TRANSISTORS
TRANSISTORSA transistor is a solid-state device that can be used for controlling electric signals. Transistors are typically mass produced and relatively low in cost. During operation, transistors produce heat that may damage the transistor if the heat becomes excessive. Since even small amounts of heat can damage many transistors, it is often essential to provide heat sinks and adequate air circulation to ensure proper transistor operation.It was explained earlier, in the discussion of diodes, that n-type and p-type materials are semiconductors. When formed into a junction, these semiconductors will allow current flow in one direction and block current flow in the opposite …
