TRANSISTOR LEAD IDENTIFICATION - RF Cafe


 
A TRANSISTOR GAIN TEST can be made using an ohmmeter and a simple test circuit. The principle behind this test lies in the fact that little or no current will flow in a transistor between emitter and collector until the emitter-base junction is forward biased.
 
A 10-to-1 resistance ratio in the test between meter readings indicates normal gain.

TRANSISTOR JUNCTION RESISTANCE TEST can also be made using an ohmmeter by
measuring the base-emitter, base-collector, and collector-emitter forward and reverse resistances.

TRANSISTOR JUNCTION RESISTANCE TEST - RF Cafe


 
MICROELECTRONICS is a broad term used to describe the use of integrated circuits to miniaturize electronic equipment.
 
A PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD (PCB) is a flat, insulating surface upon which printed wiring and miniaturized components are connected in a predetermined design and attached to a common base.
 
MODULAR CIRCUITRY is an assembly technique in which printed circuit boards are stacked and connected together to form a module. This technique increases the packaging density of circuit components and results in a considerable reduction in the size of electronic equipment.
 
An INTEGRATED CIRCUIT is a device that integrates (combines) both active components (transistors, diodes, etc.) and passive components (resistors, capacitors, etc.) of a complete electronic circuit in a single chip.
 

INTEGRATED CIRCUIT - RF Cafe


 
The two basic types of ICs are the HYBRID and the MONOLITHIC.
 
In the MONOLITHIC IC, all elements (resistors, transistors, etc.) associated with the circuit are fabricated inseparably with a continuous piece of material (called the substrate).
 
 

2-52




In the HYBRID IC, the passive components (resistors, capacitors) are deposited onto a substrate (foundation) made of glass, ceramic, or other insulating material. Then the active components (diodes, transistors) are attached to the substrate and connected to the passive components using fine wire.
