  • Hi, this is a great site, but please be gentle since I'm almost a total noob. :) I did some electronics in high school and am looking to get back into this.

    I was looking into the specs of the 2N3904 transistor and comparing it with the 2PN2222 transistor trying to determine why you would use the one you picked. What I came up with are headings like: "Current - Collector (Ic) (Max)", "Voltage - Collector Emitter Breakdown (Max)", "Vce Saturation (Max) @ Ib, Ic", "Current - Collector Cutoff (Max)", and "DC Current Gain (hFE) (Min) @ Ic, Vce".

    I recognise some of these, and are a bit sketchy on others. Do you have a site or other reference that you would recommend on learning electronics?


No public wish lists :(
