2N5089 Transistor Explained / Description:

2N5089 is a TO-92 package BJT transistor manufactured by many electronic components manufacturers. It is specially designed to amplify any type of low gain signals to high gain either they are digital or analog. Normally when we amplify a low gain signal with a general purpose transistor that is not low noise type then that transistor also amplifies the noise with the signal due to which at the output of the transistor we receive the signal mixed with a lot of noise. But 2N5089 transistor is also having a low noise feature and the noise figure is 2.0 dB due to which at the output of 2N5089 you will get the signal with low noise.

On the other hand this device can also be used as a switch to drive and control load under 100mA. Additionally it can also be used in RF applications under 50MHz.



Where We Can Use it & How to Use:

2N5089 can be used in audio amplification purposes where there is need to amplify a very low gain signal to high gain with noise cutoff. Other than that it can also be used to amplify any kind of low gain signals. Moreover it can also be used as a switch in electronic circuits to drive loads under 100mA.

How to Safely Long Run in a Circuit:

To get long term performance form a component it is always suggested to use it atleat 20% below its maximum ratings. The maximum load this transistor can handle is 100mA but as 20% rule you can use for maximum 80mA and the maximum collector-emitter voltage is 25V so you should drive load under 20V and always store or use in temperature above -65 centigrade and below +150 centigrade.
