Transistor having a base electrode and both point-contact and junction electrodes.

PNP TRANSISTOR

A junction transistor having an n-type base between a p-type emitter and a p-type collector.

PNIP TRANSISTOR

An intrinsic junction transistor in which the intrinsic region is sandwiched between the n-type base and the p-type collector.

PEDESTAL

NPN TRANSISTOR

A junction transistor having a p-type base between an n-type emitter and an n-type collector; the emitter should then be negative with respect to the base, and the collector should be positive with respect to the base.
