1. INTRODUCTION - A transistor is a small electronic device that can cause changes in a large electrical output signal by small changes in a small input is, a weak input signal can be amplified (made stronger) by a transistor. For example, very weak radio signals in the air can be picked up by a wire antenna and processed by transistor amplifiers until they are strong enough to be.   Transistor. A transistor is a solid state device made by joining three positive-type and negative-type semiconductors together. In general, all transistors have three pins: base, collector, and emitter. Transistor is a bi-polar device that is a transistor with . Electronic organs are instruments that use electronic circuits to produce signals that are amplified and sent to loudspeakers or headphones. Until the 's, most of these devices used oscillator circuits (employing vacuum tubes or transistors) to produce tones; the tones were then mixed by electric switches associated with keyboards.   Thomas Transistor Organ demo record - Duration: VWestl views. #70 Hammond B3 Organ with Two Leslie's - Duration: .

It's a very good teach text on the technology of analog organs and is quite common to find on used book sources. is currently showing used copies available. Note: be sure to get the edition; the other 2 editions cover tube designs, while the 3rd edition is .   Meanwhile, transistor development continued at a rapid pace. In , Texas Instruments introduced the silicon transistor, made of a material that was even more rugged and reliable than germanium. By , it was possible to make many transistors on a single, thin slab of silicon, cut them up into individual units, and then make them ready for use. The Hammond organ is an electric organ, invented by Laurens Hammond and John M. Hanert and first manufactured in Various models have been produced, most of which use sliding drawbars to create a variety of sounds. Until , Hammond organs generated sound by creating an electric current from rotating a metal tonewheel near an electromagnetic pickup.

A transistor is an electronic component that is used in circuits to either amplify or switch electrical signals or power, allowing it to be used in a wide array of electronic devices.

A transistor consists of two PN diodes connected back to back. It has three terminals namely emitter, base and collector. The basic idea behind a transistor is. Transistor Electronic Organs for the Amateur Alan Douglas The availability of cheap transistors facilitates the construction of inexpensive and compact electronic organs for the amateur.

For the first time, this book presents not only a detailed explanation of everything to do with transistorized organs. It is written in a simple style. A transistor is like a diode with a third layer of either p-type or n-type semiconductors on one end.

Thus, a transistor has three regions rather than two. The interface between each of the regions forms a p-n junction. So another way to think of a transistor is as a semiconductor with two p-n junctions.

TRANSISTORS AND TRANSISTOR CIRCUITS Double junction Emitter, collector and base In its essence, a transistor consists of two diodes arranged back to back: Transistors can be either n-p-n or p-n-p. The configuration shown above is called an n-p-n transistor.

The terminal on the left is called the emitter, the terminal on the right is. That’s how a transistor acts as an amplifier. Bipolar transistors work in a similar way: The base acts like the controllable valve shown, controlling the flow of electrons from the emitter to the collector (or, in circuit-speak, the flow of conventional current from the collector to the emitter).

The crucial component of an electronic device is a controllable valve that lets a weak signal control a much larger flow much as a faucet controls the flow of water.

An electric organ, also known as electronic organ, is an electronic keyboard instrument which was derived from the harmonium, pipe organ and theatre ally designed to imitate their sound, or orchestral sounds, it has since developed into several types of instruments: Hammond-style organs used in pop, rock and jazz;; digital church organs, which imitate pipe organs and are used.

His device was more rugged and more practical than Bardeen and Brattain's point-contact transistor, and much easier to manufacture.

It became the central artifact of the electronic age. Now let's look at how a transistor works in more detail. We'll go over some transistor basics, and then show you the operating modes of each type. The whole intent of a transistor is to allow you to use a little bit of electrical energy to control a lot more electrical energy.

This book explains the math around the equivalent circuits, which is incredibly helpful to the reader, if the reader will take the time to understand the s: Vacuum tubes are also called as electronic tubes or valves. Vacuum tube consists of an anode and the cathode.

The trading of transistors started from ’s and first commercial transistor was used in telephonic equipment and military computers in In transistor is. By the early s an ordinary marked transistor would cost around £1 10s 0d (£), but for those not quite so bothered about specification, red and white spot transistors could be bought.

These were effectively manufacturers rejects, but ideal in many ways for the amateur enthusiast.For transistors best book is Electronic devices and circuits theory by Boylestad and for OpAmps its OpAmps by Ramakant gayakwad both these books are very good for understanding gasics as well as advanced topics After reading these books you can go.Fig.
