    Unit – II Explanation of Photoelectric Effect Planck’s quantum theory 1. The quantum theory was proposed by Max Planck. 2. According to this theory, radiation from a source is not emitted continuously, but it is emitted in packets or bundles of energy. These packets are called quanta or photons. 3. If the radiation is of frequency ν, each quantum has energy hν where […]

    Communication System P21210003

     Unit – III The need of Modulation in Communication System: 1. The purpose of a communication system is to transmit information or message signals. Message signals are also called baseband signals, which essentially designate the band of frequencies representing the original signal, as delivered by the source of information. 2. No signal, in general, is a single frequency sinusoid, but it […]

    Unit – IV Digital Electronics and Logic Circuit: 1. George Boole, a mathematician, developed Boolean algebra based on the science of logic. In 1938, a scientist called Shenon developed electrical circuits based on the Boolean algebra which are known as logic circuits. 2. In amplifier or oscillator circuits, the current or the voltage continuously change with time from minimum to maximum. […]

    Unit – III Transistors: 1. Transistor consists of three layers made up of p and n-type semiconductors. The transistor is an arrangement obtained by growing a narrow section of one type of semiconductor crystal between relatively wide sections of other types. 2. When the n-type crystal is grown between relatively wide sections of p-type crystals then the transistor is called PNP […]

    Unit – II Circuit Diagram: Voltage across the diode can be varied with the rheostat. The milliammeter or the micro-ammeter measures the current. Forward Bias: a) In forward bias, the emf of the battery and the p.d. across the depletion region oppose each other which reduces the depletion barrier p.d. and decrease in its width. The electrons flow from N-type to […]

    Unit – I B PN Junction: 1. When a crystal of semiconductor is doped such that half the portion of the crystal is doped with a trivalent impurity and other half is doped with a pentavalent impurity, then the junction (boundary) formed is called p-n junction. 2. The crystal itself is called semiconductor diode or a solid state diode 3. Due […]
