Hello everybody, I have been making the schematic for my own 1701 board (yay yay). But since I am not an engineer I am awfully afraid of making any mistake. So I chose BC857 as a 1.8 regulator transistor since it is small and has a huge beta. It seems that this transistor should be fit for the task, but just in case, I wanted to ask, am I right? Is this transistor suitable? Again, I am just very afraid of making a mistake.
The datasheet is here.
I am confused. I thought that this question was answered in this thread:
Please let me know if I missed something. Have a great day!
You're absolutely right, this question has been answered. The original discussion is here as you said:
but somehow its initial question got duplicated above.
In addition, I had answered a different question here:
http://ez.analog.com/message/114819#114819 but my answer appeared as a new post instead.
Apparently, something is going badly wrong with whatever database is driving EngineerZone. I have posted this issue in the EZ Feedback community:
Hi guyz, hmm... it is weird, because I submitted that question and then merely edited my own post, and it seems that for some mysterious reason the topic doubled itself. I believe this thread can be safely removed, since all the questions were answered in the other thread. Probably some glitch in the system.
