Hi all, I was working with an emitter follower circuit similar to this one: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b8/NPN_emitter_follower.svg , the only difference being that in my circuit, there is a 100kΩ resistor between the Vin site and the transistor. RE is also 100kΩ. I measured ΔV across both resistors, and now that I am looking at my results, I suspect the transistor is burned out. My data is attached, where VI is the voltage drop across the resistor next to Vin (not pictured), and VO is the voltage drop across the resistor past the collector. Since the voltage drop across RE is constant at all values of Vin, its current is also constant. Am I correct in thinking this transistor was non-functional? Thanks!
