Just to be clear, your suggested circuit will put way too much satasheet through the LED, and it will be poorly controlled. Look at this spread xatasheet the datasheet: Here is the simplified schematic: Common emitter switch This is the traditional “Transistor-as-a-switch” configuration, and is similar to what you have right now.
The datasheet for the BC shows it as less than mV up to a collector current of mA. This is not the way to do it. I’d sure like to see the documentation that claims this is the recommended value. This is perhaps the easiest to understand, because it’s as intuitive as the common emitter switch, but you only have to calculate the load resistor.

A forced beta of 20 is usually good. I don’t have much experience with electronic components, and I would like to ask someone with more experience than me to check if my calculation is correct. Essentially you’ll use one of these circuits: Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Will it work the way I planned? It seemed superfluous at the time, but it makes a better answer. If you want to pass at most 20 mA through the collector, aim for 2 dwtasheet through the base, and you end up with a base resistor of about 2.
Is my calculation correct? Sign up using Email and Password. Then you pick a bc67 resistor to make sure the transistor is saturated.
Bc673 is the traditional “Transistor-as-a-switch” configuration, and is similar to what you have right now. The series resistor at the gate is there to limit the switching current, and the resistor from gate to ground is there to make sure that the gate is not floating while the pin is in a high-impedance state that is, an input or turned off.

The voltage V CEbetween the collector and emitter, is called the saturation voltage and is usually small enough to vatasheet neglected. RodrigoPeetz Yes, no one will blame you or think less of you for assuming that you can use the transistor in the way you wanted. BC as switch with Arduino Ask Question.
You calculate the resistor value by looking up the voltage drop across the LED for the current you want, then observing that the voltage drop across the resistor will be the voltage from the Arduino pin minus 0. That’s how I select transistors. Rodrigo Peetz 10 3. A little warning however: A circuit that relies on a specific current gain will simply not work well. If your board has an datasheer input with a lot of ripple, you can use it directly.
A conservative number is one tenth of the current through the collector. As you can see, there is no base resistor.
BC637 – BC637 NPN High Current Transistor
Post as a guest Catasheet. Since the output from the Arduino will be close to 5 volt, and V BE can datasheef treated roughly as a diode, you will have about 4. The idea is however that the Arduino should drive the transistor fully on so it’s saturated, passing as much current as it can, or at least enough so that the transistor is not the limiting factor. If the 5V rail drops before the power to the Arduino, perhaps if they are powered from separate rails, all the current to the LED will come from the base, and thus from the Arduino.
MOSFET switch This is perhaps the easiest to understand, because it’s as intuitive as the common emitter switch, but you only have to calculate the load resistor.
