6 Bipolar Junction Transistors (BJT) Reading: Ideal BJT Structure I C + I E Collector (N) Base (P) Emitter (N) + I B V BE + V CE I E Emitter (P) Base (N) Collector (P) I B V EB + V EC I C NPN or PNP sandwich (Two back-to-back diodes) How does current flow? Base is very thin. A good BJT satisfies the following I C >> I I B C I E I C I e S qv BE kt 12 6

7 Actual BJT Cross Section Vertical npn sandwich (pnp is usually a lateral structure) n+ buried layout is a low resistance contact to collector Base width determined by vertical distance between emitter diffusion and base diffusion 13 BJT Layout Emitter area most important layout parameter 14 7

8 BJT Schematic Symbol I C = β I B + I B V BE I + V CE C I E I e S qv BE kt V B V C V E Collector current is linearly controlled by base current Collector current is an exponential function of the baseemitter voltage 15 Operations Modes 16 8

9 BJT Collector Characteristic Ground emitter Fix V CE Drive base with fixed current I B Measure the collector current 17 Forward Active Operation Carrier Concentration Depletion Regions E B C n b (0) p c0 p e0 n b0 0 W x W B 18 9

13 V CB V BE + Transistor Action + > 0 > 0 Collector (n) Base (p) Emitter (n+) e recombination e h h h Base-emitter junction is forward biased and collector-base junction is reverse biased Electrons emitted into base much more than holes since the doping of emitter is much higher Magic: Most electrons cross the base junction and are swept into collector Why? Base width much smaller than diffusion length. Base-collector junction pulls electrons into collector 25 Forward Active Operation Carrier Concentration Depletion Regions E B C n b (0) p c0 p e0 n b0 0 W x W B 26 13

14 27 Diffusion Currents Minority carriers in base form a uniform diffusion current. Since emitter doping is higher, this current swamps out the current portion due to the minority carriers injected from base 28 14

15 BJT Currents Collector current is nearly identical to the (magnitude) of the emitter current define KCL: DC Current Gain: I = α I C F E IE = IC + IB I = α I = α ( I + I ) C F E F B C α =.999 F F I = α I = β I 1 α C B F B F β F α F.999 = = = α.001 F 29 Origin of α F Base-emitter junction: some reverse injection of holes into the emitter base current isn t zero E B C Some electrons lost due to recombination Typical: α.99 βf 100 F 30 15
