Transistors are powerful little electronic switches, and we really like these NPN and PNP transistors whenever we need to control medium-power electronics, such as small motors, solenoids, or IR LEDs. We find them so handy we threw together a mix-and-match bag of PN2222 and PN2907! You get 5 x NPN and 5 x PNP, very handy for your class B amplifier, high or low side control, LED strips, what-have-you.
Each transistor is a general purpose amplifier with a standard EBC pinout.
PN2222 (same pinout as the 2N3904) can switch up to 40V at peak currents of 1A (not continuously, just peak!), with a DC gain of about 100.
PN2907 can switch up to 60V at peak currents of 600 mA (again, not continuously, just peak!), with a DC gain of about 100.
They’re basically your garden-variety bi-polar transistors, and do the job with class!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
