How to use Transistors in DCACLAB (both NPN and PNP)

In this Post you will know that how to use Transistor in DCACLab (both NPN and PNP).

BJT (Bipolar Junction Transistor) also Generally known as a transformer is an active electronic component used in either signal amplification or logic switches in signal processing.

The transistor is a semiconductor device just like a PN Junction diode but unlike to that it has two PN junctions with different width of the depletion layers.

Steps to use PNP Transistor in Lab

Step 1 : Navigate through the list of components and click on the PNP Transistor as shown in the below screen shot.

Step 2 : A PNP Transistor will appear in the board as shown in the screenshot below. You can easily change the position of  Emitter, Base and Collector from the property box of the PNP transistor.

Steps to use NPN Transistor in Lab

Step 1 : Navigate through the list of components and click on the NPN Transistor as shown in the below screen shot.

Step 2 : A NPN Transistor will appear in the board as shown in the screenshot below. You can easily change the position of  Emitter, Base and Collector from the property box of the NPN transistor.

Controlling Properties of PNP and NPN Transistor

While using the transistor in a circuit whether its PNP Transistor or NPN Transistor. Click on it and a gear icon will appear near to the transistor.

gear sign will appear on npn transistor
Gear sign on NPN transistor
gear sign will appear on pnp transistor
Gear sign PNP transistor

Now, click on the gear sign shown in the above screenshots. The property box will appear near to the respective transistor as shown in the below screenshots.

In the property box of the transistors you can Swap the position of Emitter and Collector. You can also rotate the transistor.

Both the property box for PNP transistor as well as NPN Transistors work the same way.

  1. Current Gain or the Amplification factor of the transistor can be controlled from this section.
  2. Select or deselect this checkbox in order to swap the position of emitter and collector. It Basically flips the transistor.
  3. In this you can rotate the battery, you can rotate it from 0° to 90°, 180° and 270°.
