What is PNP & NPN Transistor

  PNP & NPN Transistor PNP Transistor The transistor in which one n-type material is doped with two p-type materials such type of transistor is known as PNP transistor. It is a current controlled device. The small amount of base current controlled both the emitter and collector current. The PNP transistor has two crystal diodes connected back to back. The left side of the diode in known as the emitter-base diode and the right side of the diode is known as the collector-base diode. The hole is the majority carriers of the PNP transistors which constitute the current in it. The current inside the transistor is constituted because of the changing position of holes and in the leads of the transistor it is because of the flow of the electrons. The PNP transistor turns on when a small current flows through the base. The direction of current in PNP transistor is from the emitter to collector. The letter of the PNP transistor indicates the voltage requires by the emitter, collector and the
