Fast switching gate

Fast switching gate
Switching transistors are usually driven into saturation. which has an adverse effeet on the switching speed. This effect is eliminated,or nearly so, by the use of Schottky diodes at the inputs. It is equally possible to add a diode to a transistor (across its basecollector juncrion) as shown in the diagram to increase its switching speed.
