In electronics

, saturation occurs when an increase in the input level does not result in an increase in the output level. Once the saturation level is reached, the electronic circuit or component operates in a range that no longer permits any further increase in current or voltage.Saturation can be observed in active electronic components: transistors, FETs and classic electron tubes with non-linear characteristics

. The operating point shifts into the range where a further increase of the control voltage has no immediate effect on the current flow

. The saturation effect occurs in electronic components, but also in magnets due to their hysteresis, in photovoltaics, in displays with color saturation, in amplifiers and loudspeakers.
