RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Book on Transistor Device - RF Cafe Forums
RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still
lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.
Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

i was wondering if someone can recommend
a good book that talks about all the parameters (gm, capacitances, etc)
versus different currents and voltages (Ic/Id, Vds, Vce, Ib, etc.) plus
other important fundamental device knowledge? most books show small
signal models and talk about the the capacitance is calculated and their
formulas based on physical parameters like width, channel length, pn
junctions, side walls, etc. but don't really talk about these small
signal parameters in light of designing a real circuit....any ideas?

In my experience the best sources for comprehensive
data and explanations would be the manufacturers' Application Notes,
like RCA, Motorola, Philips, NEC etc.
Sometimes university libraries
keep these too.
