Description

The BD139 is a popular NPN transistor widely used in various electronic applications. It features a plastic casing and is available in the TO-126 package.

The  NPN transistor means that the collector and emitter are open (reverse-biased) when the base pin is held at the ground and closed (forward-biased) when a signal is applied to the base pin. It has a gain value (hfe) ranging from 40 to 160, indicating its amplification capacity. The maximum collector current is 1.5A, making it suitable for loads consuming up to 1.5A. To bias the transistor, a limited current (IB) should be supplied to the base pin, which should be 1/10th of the collector current. The voltage across the base-emitter pin should not exceed 5V.

When fully biased, the BD139 allows a maximum current of 1.5A to flow through the collector and emitter, operating in the saturation region. The maximum allowed voltage across the collector-emitter (VCE) or base-emitter (VBE) is 80V. When the base current is removed, the transistor turns off completely, entering the cut-off region.

 

Pinout Configuration

  • Pin 1 (Emitter): Current drains out through the emitter, typically connected to the ground.
  • Pin 2 (Collector): Current flows into the collector, usually connected to the load.
  • Pin 3 (Base): Controls the biasing of the transistor and is used to turn it on or off.
