On Saturday, August 13, 2022 we will be working on the Adafruit Customer Support Forums. If you visit over the weekend and things are not complete yet, please check back later, https://adafruit.com/forumupdates
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!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
