Dynamic behavior of BJT

  1. Feb 8, 2012 #1

    Can anyone recommend a text that goes through calculation in fall time, rise time, saturation time and final rise time thoroughly with some examples provided?

    I've looked through microelectronic circuit design by Jaeger / Neamen, they briefly mention the concept at best but do not have any examples nor problems that I can work on.

    edit: I'm looking for a discussion on how to calculate these numbers by using charge control equations. For example, the delay time can be calculated from relating the average current and the equivalent capacitance in the junction.

    Thank you!

    If you want just charge control, review Gummel-Poon model derivations that include the junction capacitance.

    Be aware this isn't enough to know any of these digital parameters: circuit topology and input pulse waveform parameters are equal contributors.
