Power transistor can conduct large amount of currents through it, more than small signal transistor. power transistor has a vertical structure and small signal transistor has horizontal structure.In power transistor quasi saturation region is present which is absent in the small signal transistor. In power transistor there is a inculsion of drift layer which is not there in the small signal transistor. Power dissipation is less in power transistor and it is more in small signal transistor.

What is the difference between a transistor and a power transistor?

A power transistor is physically larger, and capable of carrying more current without melting or burning up. Usually a power transistor has a heatsink attached to help remove heat from the device and keep it cool.

What is the difference between a power BJT and a power transistor?

A BJT is one type of transistor and POWER TRANSISTOR can be BJT or MOSFET or some other phenomena.POWER TRANSISTOR are usually those who are used at high current ratings e.g at POWER AMPLIFIER where large transistors are used at final stage to gain output.

What are the active electronic components?

Active devices are those devices which can produce power or which can amplify the signal Such devices are- diode transistor op-amp

How transister amplify signal?

A transistor controls the flow of current between the emitter and collector. The larger current is supplied by the power supply, across the emitter and collector. The flow is then controlled by a small current applied to the base connection. So, a large current flow mimics the small signal current. Limits are reached, when the transistor gets close to being fully switched on or off. This will cause distortion. To avoid this, more amplification is provided by a series of transistor amplifiers, one after the other.

How do transistors amplify an input signal?

There are three pins on a transistor. One is hooked to the input signal. One to the power supply, and the third to ground. (These have different names depending on whether the particular device in your hand is a bipolar transistor or a field-effect transistor.) The pin hooked to the input signal controls the amount of voltage allowed to pass from the power supply pin to the ground pin. So, basically, to amplify an input signal you feed more power into the "power supply" pin on the transistor than you are feeding into the "input" pin. You don't want a huge amount of difference between the input and output on a transistor because it'll distort if you ask it for much, so a really high-powered transistor amp has multiple stages. That's one large difference between designing a transistor amp and a tube amp: a tube will give you a lot more amplification in one stage before it distorts. Prime example: the Marshall 2203 amplifier head, which is the most popular heavy-metal guitar amp head around. It's a 100-watt amplifier that contains one stage of preamplification with two tubes and one power amplification stage with four tubes. If that was a transistor amp it'd have at least 50 transistors in it. Another example, and a better one at that, is the 4CX35000 radio tube...which will amplify a 1750-watt input to 35,000 watts in one stage. I love solid state devices for their low power consumption, reliability and low heat, but if you're looking for a lot of gain in very few devices, tubes have always been the way to go.

Is ramp signal is energy or power signal?

no,ramp signal is neither energy nor power signal... because ramp signal is infinit energy and power

What are the component of electronics?

Electronic have two type of components Active components and Passive components. Active components are those which increase the power of a signal and must be supplied with the signal and a source of power. Passive components do not increase the power of a signal. Active components are Bipolar transistor, Operational amplifier, field effect transistors etc and Passive components are semiconductor, resistor, capacitor, inductor etc

How you can determine whether signal is power signal or energy signal?

A signal x(t) is called an energy signal , if the energy is finite and the power is zero.A signal x(t) is called an power signal , if the power is finite and the energy is infinite.

What is an emitter follower?

This is a particular transistor amplifier configuration. In general, the input signal is applied to the base, the collector is connected to a supply voltage, and the output is taken between the emitter and power supply common. One of the characteristics of the emitter follower is the output voltage "follows" the input, but the output is reduced by the Vbe voltage (the voltage drop between base and emitter, approximately 0.7 V for a silicon bipolar transistor).
