    Hello, i am new to transistors and i would like to ask a general question about what is actually a transistor, how does it function and what are the general specifications of a transistor.
    Thank you in advance.

    It might be better if you had a particular one in mind, there are lots of types. It's quite a task to explain all the different types and their uses. Try Google for these:

    Bipolar junction
    Field-effect transistor
    Germanium transistors

    With all of these there are many variants. To explain them all would take sometime. But the majority of the time they are used as either a switch or as an amplifier. If you are interested in a particular type then post them here and I am sure we can help. Here is a link with useful information.
