TIP32C PNP Bipolar Power Transistor
The TIP32 is a PNP Power transistor. Since it has high collector current of about 2A it can be used for Power switching or large signal amplification.The transistor is mainly known for its high amplification capacity since 2A is not much of a higher capacity.
Although TIP has high collector current and current gain, it is fairly simple to control the device since it has an Emitter-Base voltage (VBE) of only 5V and base current of only 120mA. But since we are dealing with high current, there will be good heat dissipation for switching applications and hence a heat sink is recommended.
|Pin Number||Pin Name||Description|
|1||Base||Controls the biasing of transistor, Used to turn ON or OFF the transistor|
|2||Collector||Current flows in through collector, normally connected to load|
|3||Emitter||Current Drains out through emitter, normally connected to ground|
