Hello friends! I hope you all will be absolutely fine and having fun. Today, I am going to give you an elaboration on Introduction to 2N3772. I have already shared basic knowledge about different IC’s and transistors in my previous tutorials e.g. Introduction to IRF540, BC547, MMBD914, LM339, LM224 and LM386. You must have alook at these tutorials before going into the details of this tutorials. It will be quite helpful in the better understanding of this article. 2N-3772 is basically a type of central semiconductor. It is basically a Negative Positive Negative (NPN) semiconductor. This semiconductor is designed by the process named as epitiaxial process. The main purpose behind its designing is to provide the high power based amplification process and fast switching applications.
The structure of 2N-3772 is mounted in JEDEC TO-3 metalic case. It is most suitable for inductive switching as well as linear amplifiers. 2N-3772 has a lot of amazing and unique features. These features include low saturation voltage for collector emitter junction. This voltage is around 4 volts. Capability of forward biased 2nd breakdown current is it another unique features among its competitors. 2N-3772 is also available in lead (Pb) free packages in the market these days. It has a wide range of applications in real life. Its most common real life applications include its use in linear amplifiers, fast switching devices, inductive switching, series pas regulators and many more that may be discussed later. This is the brief introduction to 2N3772. Thee further information about the basic use of 2N-3772 will be given later in this tutorial.
