2N5088 Transistor Explained / Description:

2N5088 is a general purpose TO-92 package transistor. It is designed to be used for low noise and high gain amplification purposes and it can also used as a switch. As an amplifier it is capable to amplify many types of low gain signals to high gain with extra noise cuttoff. It can also be used as a separate amplifier at the output of different audio circuits to drive a small 2 to 3 inche speaker. On the other hand when used as a switch it is capable to drive load of 100mA continues and 200mA in peak mode.



Where We Can Use it & How to Use:

2N5088 can be used for many general purpose applications, due to its DC high gain feature it will perform well in audio preamplifiers, audio amplifiers, signal amplifications etc. it can also be used as a switch to drive different loads under 100mA.
