What are Transistors? – Transistors 01

What are Transistors? - Transistors 01

Welcome to a brand new series on 0612 TV! Here, we learn about transistors and how we can use them in circuits to build logic gates!

In this first episode, we will look at what transistors and semiconductors actually are, see what it really means by P-type and N-type, and how we can link them up to create components like diodes and transistors!

Some excellent sources to find out more:
Sparkfun's Transistors Tutorial:
Bipolar Transistor Animation:

0612 TV, a sub-project of, is an educational YouTube channel. Started in 2008, we have now covered a wide range of topics, from areas such as Programming, Algorithms and Computing Theories, Computer Graphics, Photography, and Specialized Guides for using software such as FFMPEG, Deshaker, GIMP and more!

    This is the best explanation on how transistors work that I have ever seen. I'm looking forward to watching the rest in this series. Thank you!
