What is an RF Transistor?
An RF Transistor, or radio frequency transistor, is a semiconductor device which is used in order to amplify and switch electronic signals and power. RF transistors contain at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. A current or voltage applied to one pair of the RF transistor terminals changes the current flowing through another pair of terminals. A transistor can use a small signal applied between one pair of its terminals in order to control a much larger signal at another pair of terminals. This is called gain. A transistor has the ability to control its output in proportion to its input signal and therefore act as an amplifier. Also, a transistor can be used in order to turn current on or off in a circuit as an electrically controlled switch.
