Abstract

An apparatus is provided for reducing base-emitter voltage (VBE) mismatch and thermal mismatch in NPN transistors. The apparatus is formed by tying ends of an NPN transistor together to form a circular emitter. The circular emitter mitigates voltage gradients and thermal gradients along the length of the NPN transistor.
