I like to think I’m a pretty smart guy, but Transistors have got me beat.
I have no clue how Transistors work (to boost power, or to use as a switch), and I can’t seem to find a tutorial that’s written in Layman’s terms. I’m talking about something pointed towards beginners. I see lots of fancy looking diagrams, complicated mentions of Diodes, Bases, Emitters, and Collectors without any real mention of what exactly these are.
If anyone could guide me towards a simple tutorial/introduction to transistors, or simply explain it here, I would be eternally grateful!
