BJT and MOSFET are two active semiconductor electronic components that are widely used in manufacturing consumer electronics and other components. In this post, you’ll learn about the BJT and MOSFET conditions for which they act as an open switch.
Let’s first understand the difference between BJT and MOSFET.
BJT or bipolar junction transistor has three terminals which are named as the base, emitter and the collector. BJT is a current controlled device which is highly recommended for the lower power applications.
A MOSFET is Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor with three terminals namely the gate, drain, and the source. Unlike BJT the MOSFET is voltage current device. Usually, it is used for higher power applications.
