 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Good afternoon,

I'm just getting into Arduino (not an electronics buff) and I'm trying to build the motor speed control shown in this Instructible

http://www.instructables.com/id/Use-Arduino-with-TIP120-transistor-to-control-moto/

I'm finding it hard to get discrete components, and I have an old motor speed control kit (as yet unassembled) that contains these transistors

BC639, BC640, MOSFET STP60NE06/BUK456

Are any of these a substitute for the T1P120 listed in the Instructible  ?

thanks

The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

This is not a bipolar transistor like the TIP120 is, but it will work in place of it.
See the link below for some theory:
