the transistor is called as transistor because there is transfer of resistance from input to output .transfer resistance so it is transistor.

transistor. This word is a blended form of transfer of resistor. The legs of transistor (collector, emitter,base) transfer the resistance. So it is called as transistor

For a bipolar junction transistor: * Emitter * Collector * Base For a field-effect transistor: * Drain * Source * Gate

Transistor is called Bi-Polar device because the current can be flow due to electron and holes, hence it is called bipolar.

when transistor is subjected to an external power supply threw the biasing registors then it is called biasing. biasing is used to fix the Q-point of the transistor.

Transistor=Transfer+Resistor. When Transistor operates in active region its input resistance is high and output resistance is low. So,We can consider transistor as a device which transfers its resistance from high to low. And by this property transistor amplifies input signal.

Because in this device the resistance between two terminal respectively collector and emitter is changed by changing the base voltage that is it transfers the resistance between emitter and collector therefore it is called as TRANSISTOR. (TRANSFER OF RESISTOR)

When the out from a transistor is the exact replic of the input signal then it is called unmodulated signal i e. there will not be any change in frequency voltage power etc

if the arrow of emitter terminal is outwards is called npn transistor otherwise if the arrow of the emitter terminal of a transistor is inwards is called pnp transistor A/ On a diagram a NPN the arrow will indicate the current flow as the emitter a line is the base. An pnp will follow the same principle With a meter you may certify this principle by noting leads polarity

Transistor is usually constructed using semiconductor elements. Semiconductor elements refers to partial conductors. They are neither full nor non conductors. that semiconductor elements may be called as transistor elements

A silicon transistor is a transistor made of silicon.

Even though it has only two types of charge carriers we will not call it as a diode but a transistor since it is a three terminal device.

MOSFET is Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor. IGFET Insulated Gate Field Effect Transistor. But these expressions are practically synonyms.

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. b.v.polytechnic,vasai pushkar vaity.
