Transistors

There are many different types of transistors in use, so there are many different symbols utilized in schematic diagrams to demonstrate where and how they are connected to a circuit. The symbol above is for an NPN bipolar transistor, which permits the flow of current when there is a high potential in the middle – or base – connector.

The symbols for transistors vary widely, but they all make apparent the function of the device. For example, the Darlington transistor for which the symbol is given below is made from two bipolar transistors, which is clearly observable in the diagram.
