It is an electrode on a transistor from which a flow of electrons or holes enters the region between the electrodes.
The semiconductor material in a transistor that emits carriers into the base region when the emitter-base junction is forward biased.
the electrode in a transistor where electrons originate
one of the three leads of a bipolar transistor.
The layer of a bipolar transistor through which all current flows and from which majority carriers are injected into the base of the transistor, where they are considered minority carriers.
One terminal of a transistor.
One of the pins on a transistor, along with collector and base. The emitter is the point the transistor connects to the main circuit to return amplified signal voltage. It is the exit point from the transistor.
The lead of a transistor shown using an arrow with a head on it.
the area of a bipolar transistor that emits carriers into the base region.
A transistor region from which charge carriers that are minority carriers in the base are injected into the base, thus controlling the current flowing through the collector; corresponds to the cathode of an electron tube.
The element in a transistor that emits current carriers (electrons or holes).
One of the three semiconductor regions in a bipolar junction transistor. One of three input terminal to a BJT.
The semiconductor region from which charge carriers are injected into the base of a bipolar junction transistor.
