The total current I, starting the flow from the anode region 1 p and reaching the cathode region [n.sub.2] is influenced by the integral coefficient of the majority carriers (holes for pnpn structures and electrons for the npnp structures) injection of junction J1, by the integral transfer coefficient of the minority carriers (holes for pnpn structures and electrons for the npnp structures) through wide base, and by the avalanche multiplication of charge carriers, taking place in the collector junction at relatively high forward voltages.
This method achieves the objective using the smallest base collector junction area possible and by lowering base sheet resistance through heavy base doping.
