Gaining Clarity on Terms Related to Gain of a Bipolar Junction Transistor

A bipolar junction transistor (BJT) is a semiconductor device that can be used as an electrical switch or a switch to amplify a signal. It’s important to measure its beta, which is the gain or amplification factor of a transistor. Beta reflects the proportionality between the base current and the collector current of a BJT set at the forward active mode. Here are some essential terms related to BJT betas and why they create confusion.
