I have just begun with transistors and came upon the common base configuration.
There it's given that output current is less than input current which makes sense considering some electrons are lost during the recombination process in the base region but I don't understand this particular line:
The base-emitter junction JE at input side acts as a forward biased diode. So the common base amplifier has a low input impedance (low opposition to incoming current). On the other hand, the collector-base junction JC at output side acts somewhat like a reverse biased diode. So the common base amplifier has high output impedance.
Therefore, the common base amplifier provides a low input impedance and high output impedance. what does this exactly mean it's a npn transistor btw though if base-collector is reverse biased then it sould make sense that no electron flow to collector......
