Theory : Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) is a device with three terminals
known as emitter, base, and collector. The BJT can be categorized into two
types which known as NPN and PNP .For NPN, the emitter and collector of the
BJT are made from n-type material while its base is made from p-type
material. In contrast, the emitter and the collector of PNP are made from
p-type material while its base is made from n-type material. In either type,
a common emitter amplifier is configured by passing an input signal to the
base terminal while measuring an output signal at the collector terminal.
For the purpose of theoretically calculation, we would consider NPN type of
BJT. Figure 1 shows an example of NPN type of BJT that configured as a
common emitter amplifier. In this configuration, the input signal is
voltage input (V1) while the output signal is voltage output (V2).The
emitter terminal is common to both the input and output voltages and
therefore it is known as a common emitter.
