Chapter 7 question

Chapter 7 question
It seems the course focused on BJT's instead of FET's. Is this because FET's are not used as much as BJT's in the real world?

Hi Shawn,

In traditional electronics, the BJT was more common than the FET and so classes would teach about the BJT first and introduce the FET later on.

This type of introduction to transistors is still the same at the university level, even though FETs probably outnumber BJTs in the sheer numbers that are manufactured daily.
