In our previous discussion, we learned that a common-emitter amplifier is most widely used amplifier circuit and Common Base Amplifier is least widely used amplifier whereas a Common Collector amplifier is moderately used amplifier.

An amplifier is a electronic circuit that increases the strength of a low signal and thus acts as an amplifier. We have covered transistor basics such as what is BJT transistor, Biasing of Transistor, Different Configurations of Transistor in our previous articles. Today in this article we are going to explain working of transistor as an amplifier.
A PN junction is said to be forward biased when the externally applied voltage is in such a direction that it cancels the potential barrier of a diode, hence, allowing the current flow.
In our previous discussion, we learned that a common-emitter amplifier is most widely used amplifier circuit due to the fact that it provides good current gain and voltage gain, and Common Base Amplifier is least widely used amplifier from all three types of transistor amplifier configurations.
This article is based on the Voltage Multipliers, working of Voltage doubler circuit, voltage Tripler and voltage quadruple and the applications of voltage Multiplier circuits using different waveforms and circuit.
The first Transistor was invented in 1948 by W.H. Brattain and J. Bardeen; transistor has gained good use, they are used in almost most electronic applications. Though a transistor is only slightly more than 70 years old, and it has replaced old vacuum tubes in almost all applications. In this post, we will cover What is BJT (Bipolar Junction Transistor) Step by Step, we will also learn working of BJT as an Amplifier and Switch and their Applications.
This new article is based on the PhotoDiode? Working, Operations, and Applications.
In this article, we are going to learn about Bipolar Junction Transistor Configurations, Common Emitter, Common Base and Common Collector. So far we have covered Introduction of Bipolar Junction Transistor.
Difference Between Diode and Transistor
Difference between Diode and Transistor is very important to understand because diode and transistor are considered as the heart of the electronic circuit. The major difference between diode and transistor is that a diode is a current controlling device which allows the current in only one direction it has two terminals and it is mostly used for converting AC into pulsating DC.
Clipper and Clamper Circuits are different with respect to their operation, circuit diagrams, and their applications and in this article we, will cover Difference Between Clipper and Clamper w.r.t their Circuits, Operations, and their Applications.
