element14 has recently started providing its members a new two-part eBook series dedicated to educating engineers on the fundamentals of working with transistors, the building blocks of innumerable electronic devices.
Through this series, element14 Community members will learn the ins and outs of transistors.
The first eBook covers the basics of transistors and semiconductors, atomic theory, semiconductor doping, PN junctions, holes and free electrons and NPN transistor circuits.
Readers will then gain an even more in-depth understanding of transistors through the second eBook which covers topics such as transistor bias, transistor beta, saturation & cutoff and gain & impedance calculations.
element14 is part of the Farnell group of businesses, a global technology leader with over 80 years in the high service distribution of technology products and solutions for electronic system design, production, maintenance and repair.
Farnell uses this experience to support its broad customer base, from hobbyists to engineers, maintenance engineers and buyers as ‘The Development Distributor’, working with leading brands and start-ups to develop new products for market, and supporting the industry as it seeks to develop the current and next generation of engineers.
