Validity of the quasi-transparent model of the current injected into heavily doped emitters of bipolar devices

A simple criterion that permits one to assess the accuracy of the calculation of the current injected into a heavily doped emitter using the quasi-transparent model is presented. The criterion provides an upper limit of the error incurred by the approximation when compared to an exact computer solution, without requiring any additional calculations.
