Emitter Follower Speed-Up Resistor

This Or-driven emitter follower reduces the output signal fall-time.

RB provides a discharge path for the transistor base circuit capacitance when the Or-gate diodes are off. The output fall-time is thus reduced.

This emitter follower is capable of driving delay line inputs and finds application in And-Or-Delay logic systems.
