CHAPTER 3

ACTIVE DISCRETE COMPONENTS

There are almost as many applications for active discrete semiconductors as there are for the passive component; however, the selection of device type for specific applications is usually more stringent than with passive devices. Consequently, the choice of final component may not be influenced as much by its potential electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) effect as can be applied with passive devices, but probably more with respect to its functional performance in the application.

This sounds like an excuse to ignore or gloss over EMC issues within discrete semiconductor devices. This is not the case, but it should be borne in mind that some of the suggestions and design tips quoted here may ultimately not ...
