Simulation of the forward voltage impact on the gain of a narrow-base transistor

S. L. Khrypko


Equations have been derived that describe the effect of the forward emitter–base voltage of a bipolar narrow-base transistor on the current gain. The results make it possible to use the model for calculating the processes of charge transfer.
