Transient Phenomena in High Speed Bipolar Devices


A new numerical method is applied to the analysis of the charge partitioning in the quasi-neutral base of a BJT. The results show that the conventional, 1:2 collector/ emitter partitioning is not valid in general. High level injection increases the collector fraction, whilst fast switching decreases it.
