as a newbie, is there someplace where can i find a good explanation of

transistor models? not on the web: i looked all over it, and

everything i found was either

1) too advanced: instead of beginning ab-ovo they assume considerable

familiarity with the subject matter ("thermal voltage", "saturation

current") and with standard mnemonic symbols (whose physical meaning

therefore doesn't need to be explained)

or

2) not advanced enough: handwaving, pretty pictures, and verbiage of

uncertain meaning take the place of clear, formal (ie: logical,

mathematical) definitions

i'm willing to put a decent amount of effort into understanding this.

i will even sit through a fair amount of handwaving, if necessary,

provided i have a reasonable assurance that it really is taking me

where i want to go.

any help will be very much appreciated

peace
