MMBT3904 SMD transistor characteristics
The figure shows the DC current gain vs collector current characteristics, at these characteristics temperature capacity of the device, had a major role to play.
At a constant collector to emitter voltage, the current gain of the device will start at a certain limit and decreases at the end.
The collector current starts to increase till the time device started and then reaches the maximum limit.
The figure shows the collector to emitter saturation voltage vs collector current characteristics, the graph plotted an inverted parabolic shape for these characteristics.
This means both the collector to emitter saturation voltage and collector current started low and also they start increasing after a slight time gap.
