Vsat (BJT) = 0.2V. Why?

  1. May 14, 2012 #1
    This is my first post in the forum. :)

    Why is the saturation voltage of a transistor equal to 0.2 V? Why not a lesser value?
    During saturation the base is filled with majority carriers and the barrier potential is absent. Hence the voltage should be 0V, right?
