Hello friends, I hope you all are doing great. In today’s tutorial, we are gonna have a look at detailed Introduction to TIP3055. TIP3055 is a silicon epitaxial-ignoble NPN transistor, which is assembled in TO-218 malleable parcels. It is the best device for power swapping circuits, parallel and series controllers (regulators), output phases and high power amplifiers. Its corresponding PNP transistor is TIP2955.It is a universal device used in many industrial projects where audio amplification is required. Its structures are attractive much the identical excluding for the maximum power indulgence that is a slightly lesser. In today’s post, we will have a look at its fortification, smashup, prominence, proposals, etc. I will also share some links where I have correlated it with other microcontrollers. You can also get more material about it in comments, I will guide you more about it. So, let’s get started with a basic Introduction to TIP3055.
Introduction to TIP3055
- TIP3055 is a silicon epitaxial-ignoble NPN transistor, which is assembled in TO-218 malleable parcels. It is the best device for power swapping circuits, parallel and series controllers (regulators), output phases and high power amplifiers.

- This module uses moderate power during its working, it uses 70 voltage across emitter and collector. It consumes fifteen amperes of current at the collector.
- It is the finest option for advanced steadfastness audile amplifier output point.
- This component has termination voltage Vceo (IB =0) 60 volts.
- It has a unique extensive liability and particular excellence formation.
- Its Stowage temperature is -65 to 150 C and maximum working intersection temperature is 150 C.
Pinout of TIP3055
- These are the main pinout TIP3055 which are well-defined beneath.
Pin# Type Parameters Pin#1 Emitter The emitter is for an external drive of current. Pin#2 Base The base administers the biasing of the transistor. It vagaries the state of the transistor. Pin#3 Collector The collector is for the current inside drive. It is related to the load.
Lest see a diagram of the pinout.

Working of TIP3055
- Now we discuss the working of TIP3055 by a circuit. The corresponding circuit components and its connection are explained below let’s discuss them with the details.
- This is the circuit of amplification of power in which I used TIP3055 and TIP2955 transistors as amplifiers which provides power up to 140RMS.
- This circuit is manufactured miniature and very modest, the bulwark portion is prepared by using IC ua741 or LM741 as op-amp.
- The ultimate transistor I have stated using TIP3055 and TIP2955 transistors, or you can elevate by adding some transistors or also swap with higher output power, for example using 2SC5200 and 2SA1943.
- We can power this circuit by balanced 45V voltage, power circuit arrangement and also PCB Layout are shown in the given diagram.
Circuit Component Description
- The components which I used in this circuit is explained below with their rating values.
- R1=100K, R2=1k, R3=1K, R4=15K, R5=15K, R6=1K, R7=47R, R8=47R, R9=47R, R10=470R, R11=470R, R12=47R, R13=0, 22 – 0, 5R/5W, R14=0, 22 – 0, 5R/5W R15=56K, C1=220N, C2=100u/25V, C3=220u/25V, C4=220u/25V, C5=33p, C6=22p, RV1=TRIMMER 500R RV2=POTENTIOMETER 50K U1=LM741 / UA741 Q1=TIP41 Q2=TIP42 Q3=TIP2955/2N2955 Q4=TIP3055/2N3055
- If this amplifer circuit is not working properly then you should check input voltage.
- Output speaker has DC voltage whining, please regulate the trimmer RV1 till the DC Voltage comes out.
