Advantages and disadvantages of BJT

The term BJT full form is called as Bipolar Junction Transistor. It is one type of power transistor. It is used in the amplifier, multi-vibrator, oscillator, modulator, de-modulator etc. This article gives information about the advantages and disadvantages of BJT to know more about BJT.

Advantages of  BJT : 
  • They have a better voltage gain
  • They have a high current density
  • They have a low forward voltage 
  • It can be operated in low to high power application
  • BJT has a large gain bandwidth
  • BJT shows better performance at high frequency
Disadvantages of BJT :
  • BJT has a low thermal stability
  • BJT is most effective by radiation
  • BJT has more noise produced
  • BJT has a low switching frequency
  • BJT has a very complex control
  • The switching time is not very fast compared to a high alternating frequency of current and voltage
