C828 transistor Pinout, Equivalent

This article explain C828 transistor pinout, equivalent, datasheet, alternate and uses. Transistor c828 is most commonely genral purpose NPN transistoris a BJT transistor. C828 can be as a amplifer and switchiching purposes in electronics circuits. It can handle load of upto 100mA that is quite fair amount of current when driving other components in an electronic projects. As an amplifier it can drive 400mW and the max DC current gain value is 520. Transistor c828 is available in different DC gain values these values can be identified by looking at the last alphabet after the transistor number. If the last alphabet is “Q” it gain will be 130 to 260, if “R” the gain will be 180 to 360 and if “S” then the gain will be 260 to 520, therefore you can choose as needed in for your circuits requirements.

C828 Transistor pinout 

The C828 is manufactured in a plastic TO-92 case. It consists of 3 terminal or leads these leads are called the emitter, collector, and base leads.
