In our previous articles, we describe how transistor acts as an oscillator, switch and an amplifier. Here we are going to explain you Darlington transistor switch, configuration and applications in detail. Have a look over it. This transistor was invented by Bell laboratories engineer, Sidney Darlington in 1953. He introduced the idea of having two or three Read More …
