# Where voltage is lost in an emitter follower?

I'd wanted to know what happens in an NPN emitter follower with $$\{\delta}V=Vcc-Vee\$$. At which junction does voltage drop? May this drop be fatal to a transistor?

• You can also put a schematic of the emitter follower using the inbuilt schematic builder/as an image. – Mitu Raj Nov 30 '20 at 19:02
• Is it necessary? I wanted to draw it at first but it will clarify nothing in the question and only add complexity. – gavrilikhin.d Nov 30 '20 at 19:04
• To clarify what are the three terms in your equation. What are the voltages you speak about. – Mitu Raj Nov 30 '20 at 19:06
• Those are quite typical for any transistors. However, if you wish I'll add it. – gavrilikhin.d Nov 30 '20 at 19:08

• I suggest that most of the loss is at collector-base junction (when $Vcc > Vb + Vbe$), am I right? – gavrilikhin.d Nov 30 '20 at 19:14
