The Difference between bjt and fet

                           BJT                                 FET
1:BJT (bipolar junction transistor ) is the bipolar device.1:FET (field effect transistor) is a uni junction transistor.
2:Its operation depends on both majority charge carriers and minority charge carriers.2:Its operation depends on majority charge carriers which may be holes or electrons.
3:Input impedance of bjt is very less i.e (1k -3k)3:Input impedance of FET is very large.
4:It is the current control device.4:It is the voltage controlled device.
5:It is more noisy.5:It is less noisy.
6:Its frequency variations effect its performance.6:It has high frequency response.
7:It is temperature dependent device.7:It has better heat stability.
8:It is cheaper.8:It is costly than bjt.
9:It is bigger in size than FET.9:It is smaller in size than BJT.
10:It has an offset voltage.10:It has no offset voltage.
11:It has more gain.11:It has less gain.
12:It has high output impedance because of high gain.12:It has low output impedance because of less gain.
13:Its collector and base are more positive than emitter.13:Its Drain is positive,gate is negative w.r.t to source.
14:Its base is negative w.r.t to emitter.14:Its gate is more negative w.r.t to source.
15:Bjt has three parts ( base ,Emitter and Collector).15:Fet has three parts (Drain,Source and Gate).
16:It has high voltage gain.16:It has low voltage gain.
17:It has low current gain.17:It has high current gain.
18:Its switching time is medium.18:Its switching time is fast.
19:It is easily biased. 19:Its biasing is difficult.
20:These are preferred for low current applications.20:These are preferred for low voltage applications.
21:It requires small amount of current to keep on.21:They requires small amount of voltage to keep on.

22:It consumes more power.

23:It has negative temperature co efficient.

22:It consumes less power.

23 :It has positive temperature co efficient.
