What is TIP3055?
It is an NPN type bipolar power transistor that has a maximum collector current rating of 15 amperes and a maximum collector-emitter voltage rating of 60 volts. It is commonly used in electronic circuits for high-power amplification or switching applications where a high gain and low saturation voltage are required.
Function: NPN Power Transistor ( 15 Ampere, 60 Volts, 90 Watts )
Package : TO-247 Type
Silicon Power NPN Transistor is designed for use in general purpose power amplifier and switching applications.
• Power Dissipation-PD= 90W at TC= 25°C.
• DC Current Gain hFE = 20 ~ 100 at IC= 4.0A.
• VCE(sat) = 1.1V (Maximum) at IC= 4.0A, IB= 400mA.
Advantages Vs Disadvantages
1. High gain and low saturation voltage: High current gain and low saturation voltage, which makes it suitable for use in high-power amplifiers and switching circuits.
2. Robust and durable: The TO-247 package provides mechanical strength and better heat dissipation, making it suitable for use in harsh environments.
1. Heat dissipation: Generate a significant amount of heat during operation, which may require additional cooling measures.
2. Limited voltage and current ratings: limits its use in high-power applications.
3. Low-frequency response: It is not suitable for use in high-frequency circuits as it has a low frequency response.
