Re: bjt emitter current rating

Original poster: BunnyKiller <bunikllr@xxxxxxx>

there are 3 ratings to a transistor

E to C ( carries the current of the item being activated)
B to C ( carries the current from the sorce ( signal) to turn on the transistor)
and a combo of E+B to C ( carries the load current and the signal current)

so in effect, the emitter will have a slightly higher rating than the collector ( not much tho ... )

hi guys i was hoping someone might be able to tell me is the emitter current rating of a npn transistor same as the collector rating if someone could shed some light on this i would be greatful
