The absolute max voltage rating for the base-emitter voltage is the lowest of all values. This low value means the B-E junction must be protected from a high reverse voltage. A diode is used for an npn transistor. Explain its function and conditions under which protection is given. Draw the equivalent circuit for pnp transistors
**see attached diagram**
The Attempt at a Solution
I am not really sure about this one, but i know that because of the diode no current will flow from B to E through the diode due to the bias of the diode. However, it seems that current will still be able to flow from E to B through the diode, with a .6V voltage drop. Not really sure if i'm on the right track here or not... any help would be great!!!
