3. DC current gain
DC current gain hFE measurement
Increase the base-emitter voltage, VBE, until the collector current, IC, reaches the specified value. Adjust VBE to keep IC constant and measure the base current, IB. Calculate the DC current gain, hFE, as shown below:
Example of a DC current gain (hFE) curve
4. Collector-emitter saturation voltage
Measurement of collector-emitter saturation voltage, VCE(sat)
Apply the specified constant collector current, IC, to increase the base-emitter voltage, VBE, until the base current, IB, reaches the specified value. Adjust IC to keep IB constant and measure the collector-emitter voltage.
5. Base-emitter saturation voltage
Measurement of base-emitter saturation voltage, VBE(sat)
Apply the specified constant collector current, IC, to increase the base-emitter voltage, VBE, until the base current, IB, reaches the specified value. Adjust IC to keep IB constant and measure the base-emitter voltage.
Note: Keep the open-circuit voltage of the constant-current source below the collector-emitter breakdown voltage.
