D880 NPN Transistor

  • The D880 transistor is an NPN transistor with a TO-220 packaging. It's intended for audio frequency amplification, although it can be used for any general-purpose application that fits within its specifications. It can be used as a switch and can drive loads of up to 3A; with that much output current, it can drive motors, high-power transistors, and relays, for example. Because of its low saturation voltage, it can be used to drive a range of loads at the output of a variety of electrical platforms such as the Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
