“What is one of the more typical types of transistors?”

 

Transistors come in all different types of shapes and sizes. However, what is one of the most typical types? Well, let’s use our engineering mindsets to find out. First, the model is made up of two doped semiconductors attached end to end with a common joint. One one side is the collector, the other the base, and the end the emitter. The current that goes into the base will allow the current from the collector to the emitter to pass through. This setup is known as a Bipolar Junction Transistor and can be found everywhere from semiconductor processing to microcontrollers.
