It’s considered one the greatest inventions of the 20th Century. The transistor is the basis of nearly all electronic devices. So what is a transistor? It’s a semiconductor device that is used to amplify and switch electronic signals. The majority of transistors used today are embedded within integrated circuits, although some come separately packaged. Released in the 1950s, the transistor is what helped the widespread advancement and availability of technology like radios, calculators and even computers.
In the 1960s and 1970s the bipolar junction transistor was the most popularly used transistor and the first transistor to be mass produced. The BJT is made up of three terminals, corresponding to the three layers, the emitter, the base, the collector. It is useful in amplifiers because the currents at the emitter and collector are controllable by a relatively small base current. More recently, Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field-effect Transistor (MOSFET), a transistor used for amplifying or switching electronic signals, surpassed the BJT . The MOSFET is used in most analog and power applications, including power transmitters and motor drivers. Transistors are also commonly used in electric switches for power appliances.
Today, the widespread use of thousands of different kinds of transistors, in all kinds of electronic products, have made it easier to get a good deal on the electronic components, especially if you are buying online. Vendors buy and sell used and surplus transistors, that work just as well and are more affordable than buying transistors straight from the manufacturer.
