Hello friends, I hope you all are doing great. In today’s tutorial, we are gonna have a look at detailed Introduction to TIP3055. TIP3055 is a silicon epitaxial-ignoble NPN transistor, which is assembled in TO-218 malleable parcels. It is the best device for power swapping circuits, parallel and series controllers (regulators), output phases and high power amplifiers. Its corresponding PNP transistor is TIP2955.
It is a universal device used in many industrial projects where audio amplification is required. Its structures are attractive much the identical excluding for the maximum power indulgence that is a slightly lesser. In today’s post, we will have a look at its fortification, smashup, prominence, proposals, etc. I will also share some links where I have correlated it with other microcontrollers. You can also get more material about it in comments, I will guide you more about it. So, let’s get started with a basic Introduction to TIP3055.
Introduction to TIP3055
- TIP3055 is a silicon epitaxial-ignoble NPN transistor, which is assembled in TO-218 malleable parcels. It is the best device for power swapping circuits, parallel and series controllers (regulators), output phases and high power amplifiers.

- This module uses moderate power during its working, it uses 70 voltage across emitter and collector. It consumes fifteen amperes of current at the collector.
- It is the finest option for advanced steadfastness audile amplifier output point.
- This component has termination voltage Vceo (IB =0) 60 volts.
- It has a unique extensive liability and particular excellence formation.
- Its Stowage temperature is -65 to 150 C and maximum working intersection temperature is 150 C.
Pinout of TIP3055
- These are the main pinout TIP3055 which are well-defined beneath.
Pin# Type Parameters Pin#1 Emitter The emitter is for an external drive of current. Pin#2 Base The base administers the biasing of the transistor. It vagaries the state of the transistor. Pin#3 Collector The collector is for the current inside drive. It is related to the load.

Working of TIP3055
- Now we discuss the working of TIP3055 by a circuit. The corresponding circuit components and its connection are explained below let’s discuss them with the details.
- This is the circuit of amplification of power in which I used TIP3055 and TIP2955 transistors as amplifiers which provides power up to 140RMS.
- This circuit is manufactured miniature and very modest, the bulwark portion is prepared by using IC ua741 or LM741 as op-amp.
- The ultimate transistor I have stated using TIP3055 and TIP2955 transistors, or you can elevate by adding some transistors or also swap with higher output power, for example using 2SC5200 and 2SA1943.
- We can power this circuit by balanced 45V voltage, power circuit arrangement and also PCB Layout are shown in the given diagram.
