S8050 Advantage

S8050 npn transistor

S8050 is a NPN transistor hence the collector and emitter will be left open (Reverse biased) when the base pin is held at ground and will be closed (Forward biased) when a signal is provided to base pin. It has a maximum gain value of 400; this value determines the amplification capacity of the transistor normally S8050. Since it is very high it is normally used for amplification purposes. However, at a normal operating collector current the typical value of gain will be 110. The maximum amount of current that could flow through the Collector pin is 700mA, hence we cannot drive loads that consume more than 700mA using this transistor. To bias a transistor we have to supply current to base pin, this current (IB) should be limited to 5mA.

When this transistor is fully biased then it can allow a maximum of 700mA to flow across the collector and emitter. This stage is called Saturation Region and the typical voltage allowed across the Collector-Emitter (V­CE) or Collector-Base (VCB) could be 20V and 30V respectively. When base current is removed the transistor becomes fully off, this stage is called as the Cut-off Region.

Where & How to use S8050

S8050 transistor is a general-purpose transistor, it is a perfect transistor to perform small and general tasks in electronic circuits. You can use it as a switch in electronic circuits to switch on loads under 700mA. 700mA is enough to handle variety of loads for example relays, LEDs, bulbs etc. It can also be used as amplifier in small amplification stages or as a separate small signal amplifier.


How to Safely Long Run S8050 in Circuit

To safely run S8050 transistor in your circuit or electronic projects do not operate this transistor from voltage higher than 20V and do not operate any load more than 700mA or 0.7A. Use a suitable base resistor which will limits the base current to its required level. Do not expose it to heat over 150 centigrade and below -60 Centigrade.
