Introduction to BC549 5

[otw_is sidebar=otw-sidebar-1]BC549 PinoutI hope you all are good, in the previous tutorial I have discussed about datasheet overview of the BC549 transistor. In this tutorial I will discuss the overview of the datasheet of the BC549 transistor.

After reading this tutorial the reader will be able to learn about the pinout of the BC549 transistor, basic description of BC549 transistor, nominal electrical characteristics of the BC549 transistor and the general circuits in which this transistor can employed.

So sit back, keep reading and enjoy learning!



BC549 Pinout:

The pinout of the BC549 Transistor is as shown in the following figure:

The symbol of the BC549 transistor is also represented in the above figure. It is important to notice here that while pointing out the leads of the transistor the flat face of the transistor should be facing. This applies for all transistors.

BC549 Basic Description:

BC549 is a general purpose transistor and mainly employed for switching and AF (audio frequency) amplifier applications. The BC549 transistor gets on when the Base-Emitter Voltage exceeds 0.55 volts. The Transfer characteristics of the transistor is defined as the relation between the input and output voltage.

BC 549 Transistor Type:     

  • Bi-Polar NPN
