What is Darlington connection in amplifier?
A Darlington pair consists of two npn transistors connected as shown in the diagram. The way they work is easier to understand if it is explained in terms of conventional current. Given a small base current flowing to Q1, a much larger collector current flows into the transistor and out of the emitter.
Who invented Darlington transistor?
Sidney Darlington (July 18, 1906 – October 31, 1997) was an American electrical engineer and inventor of a transistor configuration in 1953, the Darlington pair.
What is Darlington pair and what are its advantages?
Benefits or advantages of Darlington transistor
➨It offers very high input impedance. ➨It uses few components and hence can be used for easy circuit designs. ➨It can amplify signal to larger extent. ➨It allows designers to drive more power applications by few mA of current source. ➨It is very sensitive to current.
