Transistor Array - NPN/PNP (IMD2AT108) - 5pcs

Sold as a cut-tape of 5 pieces. This is a popular IC that combines a PNP and NPN transistors, as well as two base resistors and two pull-up resistors, all into one small Mini6 package (very similar to the SOT-457 package). We use this little IC for level translation and logic inversion on the SMD Shifter board but has a multitude of uses. Will work with SOT23 Breakout Board.

Sold as a cut-tape of 5 Pieces.

Transistor Array - NPN/PNP (IMD2AT108) - 5pcs Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

3 Soldering

Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.
See all skill levels

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

    mini 6? SOT-457? EMD2/EMT6, UMD2N/UMT6/SC-88, IMD2A/SMT6/SC-74? confused yet? Let me clear this up, Sparkfun says mini 6 or similar to SOT-457, the linked data sheet clearly states that a a UMD2N/UMT6/SC-88 is also the same foot print, and therefore pin out of the mini6, oh wait, no it doesn't.

    mini6 or SOT-457 appear nowhere on the datasheet, but that's ok because the pin out is the same for all three sized devices..... oh wait, no its not.

    But that's ok because i can just look at the schematic of the RS232 shifter board and figure out what pin out this device actually is..... oh wait, no i can't. the schematic has thoughtfully omitted the pin numbers. ( Seriously?! Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!)

    So your selling a handy little device, with one of three footprints with two possible pin configurations, that you use in a product you sell, and provide two example footprints that aren't even mentioned on the datasheet you link to, and provide an example circuit that does nothing to clear this up.......

    So, as Dave would say,..."FAIL!"

    seriously, you guys order, stock, and use this thing, would it kill you to reference the datasheet for the package size? would it be too much trouble to include pin numbers on a schematic with a whopping total of 1, count 'em 1 IC?

    I know I'm ranting here but it shouldn't be a stretch to assume that someone who is buying this is also designing a circuit board for using it, and its incredibly frustrating to not be 100% sure about one little footprint, especially when all you would have to do is put forth just a small effort to clear up the matter.

    Thanks! that was quick, looks like the others are on the way.

    Seems to be a trend here, I also only received 1 unit, Sending them an e-mail......

      Sorry about the issue, send us an email at with your order number and we'll get you taken care of.

    Hmm, I assumed I would be receiving 5 of these when I ordered a quantity of 1. Maybe I was optimistic in understanding the description but I only received a single item, not a strip of 5. Was I supposed to order 5?

      Sounds like you should have gotten 5. Email them about this.
