A transistor connected in a common base configuration has a collector resistor formed as two series-connected resistors within a common isolation region of an integrated circuit device. The common connection point of the two resistors is connected to the base terminal to provide a reference voltage. The resistor values are adjusted to establish a switching level for the transistor.
