A Bipolar NPN Transistor Configuration

The construction and the terminal voltages for the bipolar NPN transistor are shown in the figure above. The voltage between the Base and Emitter of the transistor ( VBE ), is positive at the Base and negative at the Emitter because, for an NPN transistor, the Base terminal remains always positive with respect to the Emitter. The Collector supply voltage is also positive with respect to the Emitter ( VCE ). So for the case of a bipolar NPN transistor to conduct the Collector is always more positive with respect to both the Base and the Emitter.
