I've seen this diagram many times over and I'm having trouble getting my brain around what is constant in it:
My reasoning: if we change Vcc, we get different Ic. If we change the resistors, we get different values across the entire circuit.
Ic(max) = Ib * β
Changing the voltage at the base without changing the resistor values will change the current of the base which changes the current that can flow through the collector too. Am I getting something wrong here?
So why exaclty is it called a constant current source, how should I interpret that name?
