Global Small Signal Transistors Market: Introduction
Small signal transistors are transistors or solid state components used to generate electric signals, control and amplify them. Small signal transistors are of two types, namely NPN and PNP transistors. Small signal transistors can be used as amplifiers and switches for various applications. Nowadays, small signal transistors are offered with the latest silicon planar technology that ensures fast switching performance high reliability. Usually for small signal transistors the hFE values range between 10 and 500, whereas the IC ratings of small signal transistors ranges from 80 to 600 mA (milliamperes).
Small signal transistors can be used for amplifying small signals such as using mA of current and a few volts. Whereas one should use power transistor in place of small signal transistor when using larger voltage and current. Small signal transistors can withstand high voltages and temperatures and therefore are ideal components UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) and PS (Power Supply Unit). The small signal transistor segment is becoming further extensive in more small packages with numerous combination of resistance value for space saving. Some of the applications of small signal transistors in different segments are LED diode driver, relay driver, bias supply circuits, infrared diode amplifier, timer circuits, audio mute function, on/off switches for general use and telecom wire line interface circuits.
Global Small Signal Transistors Market: Dynamics
Automation helps in controlling the systems effectively and efficiently and hence it is being adopted in various industries at a very rapid pace. Thus implementation of automation is one of the major trends in small signal transistor market. Hence increasing automation in different industries is anticipated to drive the growth of the small signal transistor market during the forecast period. The increased switching speed of small signal transistor helps to reduce the noise, which further reduces the energy consumption, fueling the growth of the small signal transistors market over the projected period.
