# Transistor Hfe

97 Threads found on edaboard.com: Transistor Hfe

## VCE(sat) and hFE improvement

hfe is used with a linear transistor that is not saturated, the datasheet shows a Vce of a few volts to 10V. The datasheet for most transistors shows the saturation voltage drop when the base current is 1/10th the collector current disregarding the hfe.

## icbo and iceo in transistors...

A common emitter transistor is an amplifier. It amplifies its collector to base (icbo) leakage current.

## Common Emitter Transistor Circuit

Well, it's not quite that simple. What's the saturation voltage of the transistor? What's the Vbe?(You probably assumed 0.7, but it could be something a little different. Is the transistor GUARANTEED to have a beta of exactly 150? I doubt it, there's usually a minimum/maximum range.

## constant beta of NPN transistor over a large range of ib or ic.

By design method, any architecture can realize a constant current gain(beta) over a large input (ib) range? Unlike the typical current gain as shown in this figure, the gain should be a constant line. 131995Don't know of any way to do that. Normally the voltage gain of a transistor is stab

## Measuring Hfe of a NPN power transistor with 5A of collector current

Hi, I need to measure hfe of a NPN power transistor with 5A of collector current. I found a lot of of circuits to measure hfe but no one has this characteristic. Regards, Fernando - PU2PLL

## in finding an equivalent transistor, what are the important parameters?

The original 2N3392 was called "general purpose", not low noise. The circuit has low currents in the transistors so 500mA max does not matter. The transistors are reasonably biased so high hfe does not matter. Many Japanese transistors like the 2SC945 have the same plastic case and pinning. if you buy an old 2N2925 then buy (...)

## bfp420 bjt biasing and where to find iv curves?

IV curves cannot be used because the hfe of any transistor part number and the base-emitter voltage are a range because some of the transistors are more sensitive and others are less sensitive. The curves on a datasheet and a simulation show only a "typical" device but the circuit you design must have enough negative feedback so that it (...)

## What is the problem with the FM Transmitter circuit and my layout ?

Dear friends. I wanna make a fm transmitter with electret microphone for my elder aunt. We all live in same apartment, and sometimes my elder aunt need help. If we can listen her by our FM radio, when she need help, we can immediately go and help her. It was my main aim. So I researched some circuit and I found one of them that seems solve my

## What is the hfe range of this npn transistor?

KSC388 (npn transistor) datasheet page 2 says it has a hfe of 20 to 200 However, graph on page 3 (fig2) shows its hfe is around 110 to 150. Which page is right? KSC388 NPN datasheet

## Astable Multivibrator using Transistors

With an Rb of 15K, you need to make sure that the transistor just goes into saturation. So (Vcc-.8)/15K = Ib. therefore Ic = hfe X Ib, so Rc =(Vcc-.3)X 15K/ hfe X (Vcc-.8) or ~ 15K/hfe. 1K would do. Frank But most transistors do not saturate if their base to collector current is defined by (...)

## low noise npn faster than mat12 sought

It's pointless to compare audio low noise with RF transistors. Unfortunately you didn't even mention the frequency range of interest, particularly does the noise corner frequency matter?

## What is a Harris C9006 800637 TO-3 package used in an oscillator/driver circuit?

No problemo, sorry I took it the wrong way. I think I just need to look for a cheap switching TO-3 NPN transistor , maybe 250V or higher with about 10A capability. I'm going to try a BUX32B. Try if you like but it has poor gain and Rce hfe= 8 ~40 @ 3.0/6.0 (Vce / Ic ) implies Rce= 500 millOhm 8 is low

## Poweer transistor low "on" voltage

Hi, I'm using the 2SB507 as a regulator bypass transistor, and have a small concern about the specific two I am testing the circuit with which I wanted to use: A few months ago, the same type of transistor (perhaps even the same batch, they came in the same bag of 10) had a fully on voltage drop of 0.65 - 0.7V, and a guesstimated hfe (...)

## PNP Transistor to control Tx module not working

One other thing, notice they haven't quoted a quiescent current? When I have one connected to a circuit it drains the battery when left idle, that's why I decided to toggle the power using the transistors. Before making things complicated, try measuring the current again with the DATA pin tied to ground, my experience of these kinds

## Transistor substitute/equivalent?

Hi, I need to replace a broken transistor, is a BFR36, but I'm unable to find the same transistor at the local electric shop; I can't exactly figure out which equivalent would be ok: by a search on Google I've seen a pair of possible candidates: 2N5109 and 2SC1068; which of these two would be fine? Or maybe someone could suggest me a good altern

## Transistor as a switch

I want to design transistor as a switch.Any ideas on how can i begin.Every text that we have been taught uptil now discusses it but is silent about design.

## IDENTIFY Transistor from its Hfe Value

A transistor in a TO-220 case is usually used at 1A to 3A, not at just 0.0025A like your tester uses. hfe is not used when the transistor is a saturated switch anyway, usually the base current is 1/10th the collector current for a switching transistor but at higher currents the base current might need to be 1/3rd the (...)

## datasheets Hfe's graph

Hi, for the MJL1302A transistor, the datasheet gives the graph which shows the hfe for Ic and for temperatura but it's for Vce=5 The transitor will be part of class AB amplifier, so it's going to work in cutoff and saturation (well, it's not going to be in saturation for the current that the tranformers can gives). In cotoff it's going to ha

## Common Emitter amplifier base current

113554 Ok so I have a really simple Common Emitter amplifier (I know it's not a very reliable circuit, but please ignore that). I'm a little confused as to how I select the base current. I have the equations: Vcc=IB*RB +VBE and VCC=IC*RL + VCE The component values are select so that IB makes VCE half the power sup

## Linear power supply series transitor

Hi, In linear power supplies there is a transistor (usually darlington) that is current-controlled depending on the output voltage. The problem is I cant seem to find the Vout - current-to-darlington-base equation. Do I operate it in the linear region? When Vout < Vout_desired do I saturate it? What is the range of current in its base? (i

## pwm to control proportional valve

Darlington's have the disadvantage of almost 2 diode drops initially ( actually 1 diode drop & 1 saturation drop) but when conducting heavy currents with fast pulses in PWM due to low input capacitance compared to MOSFETS will have better current gain( ~100) . When the transistor is used as a switch and saturates, the hfe typically reduces to o

## How can I simulate a circuit using 2SC1969 transistor in ADS

How can I simulate a circuit using 2SC1969 transistor in ADS? i don't think there exists a model of 2SC1969. So how can I simulate?

## CE amplify positive half signals more than negative one !!!

Your emitter capacitor C1 shorts the emitter resistor which kills all AC negative feedback. Why is the DC collector voltage so high that the transistor is almost cutoff? I simulated it and got a voltage gain of only 30.1 times. I corrected the bias so that the DC collector voltage is 6.3V and got a voltage gain of 181.3 times. Without any negativ

## Driving 24Vdc Solenoid valve with Transistor or MOSFET?

There is a different class of transistor switch with ultralow Vce and Rce with higher hfe and gain at saturation. I wont get into the epitaxial differences but instead of 10:1 Ic:Ib specs for switch operation they are 50:1 and usually specialized by Diodes Inc and some others. They also class the devices for NPN with Rce like MOSFETs

## How to drop off a couple of volts.

I'm searching for another pair of transistors but all i find with suitable voltage/current ratings have approximately the same hfe. There is something I don't understand and are missing, but what? When designing power supplies with discrete transistors, you should also consider other circuits than single (...)

## difference between DC small signal gain and AC small signal gain ?

The capacitance of a transistor and its wiring is a filter and produces negative feedback from the collector to its base due to the Miller effect which reduces the hfe AC small signal current gain. The hfe DC small signal current gain is not affected so it is the highest. Fairchild's datasheet for the 2N3904 transistor (...)

## How to calculate Zin and Zout for input and output matching network?

Friends I am new in RF design. I want to design a class A power amplifier at 850 MHz by ADS. How to calculate Zin and Zout of transistor Q2SC5761_M16 for input and output matching network. hfe of transistor Q2SC5761_M16 and QN3440 are 300 & 100 respectively. Graph of Vce Vs ic is correct but graphs of Zin and Zout are wrong. 10

## Scaling and buffering an analog signal cheaply

If I remember my transistor circuits, the output impedance of a common-collector transistor is the emitter resistor (100K, in your case) in parallel with (input impedance)/hfe. Thus, you're still going to have a pretty high output impedance (maybe around 50K). Can you use a lower value emitter resistor?

## A question about imput impedence

To a first approximation, if the beta is very large than the transistor will sink all the input current with negligible change in input voltage, thus Rin will be zero.

## Confused by transistors and base leg resistors!

BC 546/7/8 is one of the most used general purpose transistors, so don't worry about availability. If you want that any BC548 type can be used (A, B or C), calculate the resistor for the A version. If you can have some power consumption from 3.3V, just go for 1 mA, this will sure saturate the transistor. At low temperatures hfe drops and (...)

## [MOVED] Triangular Wave Generator

I applaud your decision in "going all the way" and designing a discrete-component amplifier. It is a good learning experience! :idea: But my first word of advice is that you'll definitively need more than a DMM to design and debug it. Beg, borrow or steal an oscilloscope and a function generator. Also, some power resistors, because if you plan on

## the right transistor??

Well, I'm not sure I'd say it this most important thing to know... There are a number of things you need to consider in selecting the transistor, in no particular order: What voltage will it operate at? What is your current load? What is the available drive current and voltage? How fast do you need to switch your load? As far as hfe, a rule of th

## Unbalanced "phantom" power

The 0.1 miiliohm value you put in for R8 isn't but ridiculous. Sorry you could not grasp that R8 with its value was not a working part. It was a placeholder for the sim and to help explain what I am asking about. All in all the problem can be easily solved and has been already a thousand times.[/

Hi, Can anyone point to me a equivalent transistor to the 2DC 5609? Thanks, Bruno

## [MOVED] Low Ib current NPN transitor for PIC, Ic=1A

I have a heavy load to drive with a PIC and I want to use an NPN transitor with load on Collector. I'm looking for a transistor that starts conducting with a very low current on base, low enough to be driven with a PIC (TTL out, 25mA max). I also need high current on Collector (around 1A). To better explain the way I'm going to use it, here's the

## Transistor base current for this circuit ... Help

Hello I have this simple current source circuit and the current source through the collector is controlled by voltage drop across the transistor base emitter and resistor R5 Ic=Ie = Vbe/R5 but i want to know how much current flowing through the base and diodes ? The current flow through the resistor R6 = (9-1.4)/1K = 7.6mA i supposed the to

## current through series/parallel circuit

I think Millman's theorem wont help me. Below is my simplified circuit in which am suppose to calculate total current when the transistor is ON. Consider diode drop as 1V, transistor Vce as 0.7. when transistor is ON, we see 3 current loops i.e. R2,D1,R1,U1,D2,R4 and R5,R6,U1,D2,R4 and R5,R3,D2,R4. so how to calculate total current I1,+I2+I3 ?

## Self biasing a transistor

I'm guessing you are ignoring base current and hfe in your assumptions. I am afraid, boylesg is not familiar with transistor basics (operation principles).

## Transistor current calculation

Ib > (Ic/hfe) Use a value of Ib that is much greater than Ic/hfe, to ensure that the transistor is fully on (saturation mode). Hope this helps. Tahmid.
