NPN and PNP Transistors


Bipolar Junction Transistors

This is lab 4 of 14 in the course
In this lab, students will be looking at some of the important applications of transistors in the real world, discussing why they are important, why we use them, and what they can do. A transistor, similar to a faucet, can control the flow of electrical current. In section 1 of this lab, students will look at the definition and the importance of a transistor and understand its behavior by simulation using Multisim Live. In section 2, students will learn how bipolar junction transistors are used as a switch. They will use actual breadboarding and circuit-building to confirm the theory and simulation.
