bipolar transistor

n.
A type of transistor used to amplify or switch electrical signals and consisting of three semiconductor layers treated so that the layer in the middle has an inherent electric charge opposite to the charge of the layers on either side of it. Signals applied to the middle layer control the strength of current flow between the outside layers.

In this work, impurities-controlled electrical properties at the base-collector junction will show how a silicon junction transistor (SJT) can add new functionalities based on switching cycles of the inductor polarity to design novel electronic circuits by combining both passive components and active devices (BJT).
All simulations initially reproduced a cooler PBL than that observed, due to the underestimated RL (residual layer) in the initial conditions, all model simulations nearly the same, but drier and cooler than measures of 1100 BJT, 1 July, at height from 2 to 3.5 Km (Figures 2(a) and 3(a)).
BJT: Right now Gekatex is really focusing on cleanroom offerings, which we are developing new products for.
BJT: Yes for sure--there is room for innovation in developing new substrates.
Advantages of IGBT are ease in control and high input impedance as in a MOSFET and low conduction losses as in a BJT. However, due to current tailing in IGBTs, switching frequencies are limited to about 70 kHz.
The large starting current of motor-A is provided by a 7812 dc voltage regulator with a current booster BJT transistor MJ2955.

Besides, by introducing Low Vt, NPN BJT, depletion device, zener diode and 18V LDMOS devices, Hua Hong Semiconductor expands its mixed signal IC and power management IC portfolios, to deliver high-performance and low-cost solutions for such applications as gauge IC, temperature sensor, smart meter, power bank and MEMS ASIC.
The BTJ (actually, the "T," while placed in the center of the logo, is the final word in the company name, so perhaps it should be "BJT") was offered in .38 Special and, for a short period, 9mm Parabellum.
