This chapter presents the fundamentals of a bipolar junction transistor amplifier and includes the following aspects: choice of Q point, classes of operation, incremental equivalent circuit, frequency response, cascading, broadbanding and pulse testing. The emphasis is on understanding the fundamental, rather than rigorous analysis or elaborate design procedure.
