Simple Transistor Project: Suggestions Welcome

  1. Nov 8, 2006 #1
    Hi, I have to do a brief introduction for transistors in my seminar class.

    Are there any simple demos you recommend? it's just to show the class what a transistor does?

    we were thinking about activating a LED.

    any other options (we wil be using a breadboard)

    Make a class a amplifier that takes input from your ipod and plays it to a speaker.

    If you want to get really crazy, you could show how transistors are used in fiber optic circuits to change electrical signals into light and vice versa
