Title: LaVache Transistor
Post by: davenoid on January 23, 2012, 05:33:28 PM
Hello,

I'm building a LaVache, and I would like to use a different transistor than a 2N3565. Specifically, I would like to use a 2N3904. Can someone please tell me how I should orient the 2N3904 on the LaVache PCB?

Thanks,
David L.

The flat indentation on the package drawing of the 2n3565 is the emitter. For a 2n3904, the emitter is the far left pin with the flat side of the transistor facing upwards.
