A circuit that relies on a specific current gain will simply not work well.

This is a bc63 mistake. It is better to add a series resistor on the LED – the forward voltage of a blue LED is probably around 3V, so the resistor drops 2V and at 22mA it would have to be about 91 ohms.

As you can see, there is no base resistor. Sign up using Facebook. This is the traditional “Transistor-as-a-switch” configuration, and is similar to what you have right now. Emitter follower This can be seen as a current booster.

Rodrigo Peetz 10 3.

Just to be clear, your suggested circuit will put way too much current through the LED, and it will be poorly controlled. Why not add 3 common emitter switch? The current gain varies a lot depending on all sorts of things: Dagasheet I stopped reading there. So using the formula: The gain of the transistor is not well defined probably between 80 and Dataasheet voltage V CEbetween the collector and emitter, is called the saturation voltage and is usually small enough to be neglected.

A little warning however: It would be awesome if we could, it would make many circuits simpler, but it’s simply too unreliable to be of any practical use. I assumed that’s what he had in the junkbin.


This can be seen as a current booster. It seemed superfluous at the time, but it makes a better answer. Look at this spread from the datasheet:.

I’d sure like to see the documentation that datassheet this is the recommended value. If the 5V rail drops before the power to the Arduino, perhaps if they are powered from separate rails, all the current to the LED will come from the base, and thus from the Arduino.

Then datashedt pick a base resistor to make sure the transistor is saturated. A conservative number is one tenth of the current through the collector. This is no omission from my part, and it is one of the benefits of this configuration: ChetanBhargava i salvaged this from one circuit and its laying in my bin. This is perhaps the easiest to understand, because it’s as intuitive as the common emitter switch, but you only have to calculate the load resistor.

ChetanBhargava He’s reading the minimum hFE, datxsheet goes up to Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Essentially you’ll use one of these circuits: A forced beta of 20 is usually good. If you want to pass at most 20 mA through the collector, datashdet for 2 mA through the base, and you end up with a base resistor of about 2.

The voltage at the emitter will closely track the voltage bc673 the base, only 0. Thank you for the explanation, well i’m student in the area so i lack the expertise. If your board has an unregulated input with a lot of ripple, you can use it directly.

You calculate the resistor value by looking up the voltage drop across the LED for the current you want, then observing that the voltage drop across the resistor will be the voltage from the Arduino pin minus 0. That’s how I select transistors. The idea is however that the Arduino should drive the transistor fully on so it’s saturated, passing as much current as it can, or at least enough so that the transistor is not the limiting factor.

Post as a guest Name. RodrigoPeetz Yes, no one will blame you or think less of you for assuming that you can use the transistor in the way you wanted. Spehro Pefhany k 4 Will it work the way I planned? The transistor will draw the absolute minimum amount of base current necessary to keep the right amount of current flowing through the collector.

This works if the voltage drop across the LED is small enough that you have some “headroom” left across the resistor. There must be hundreds, thousands of instructions out there on how to drive a LED with an Arduino, and the best method will be slightly different depending on the voltage drop across your LED.
