PyroEDU Lesson 7 – The Transistor – Now Live!

Posted December 6, 2012 by Chris

Last week, we learned more about The Diode, the 6th lesson of the first PyroEDU course: An Introduction To Modern Electronics. This week we’re introducing the most important electronics component: The Transistor.

Like diodes, most people have heard about transistors, however few people understand what they are and what they can do. This lesson takes a few steps deeper to explain and perform some experiments about how transistors are great electrical on/off switches. A little theory is also explored to introduce you to BJT transistor formulas.
