    Howdy,

    I'm going through a "transistor phase" trying to learn more about them and have found this site:

    www.alltransistors.com

    Do all of you use it?
    Or is/are there better site(s) for information on
    a - transistor substitution (finding "equal" transistors)
    b - general information about any transistor
    ?

    As usual, I thank you in advance.

    Black background (plus those awful colors) is horrible. Hard to read for me. I do not even try.

    They seem to be all together but if you google any one, there are several sites also offering datasheets.

    Hello,

    On this site you will find links to all semiconductor manufacturers:
    http://sdw.bgs.nu/
    There are links to the homepages and data sheets.

    Sometimes when you have to take a look at that kind of the sites, then you can moving your mouse into the range of the page, and press Ctrl+A on your keyboard, then it will change the color and looks better.

    When you want to recover the page then you just click the left button on that page, and it will return to the original color.

    I just found that site about one week ago, I didn't use it much, but I keep it in my database, I usually use http://www.datasheetcatalog.net/ to search the datasheets, when I can't find the datasheet of parts, then I will search on the other similar parts search engine, or search on google.

    Thanks for that tip, Scott.

    As you say, it works for some. Never heard of that trick. Where did you learn it?

    Gracias again.

    Cntrl +A is simply "select all" in Windows.

    Aha, so what I am using is kind of a "side effect" of that command. Nice. ;)

    If you say "select all" I immediately think of Ctrl E (as in Word which is the software I use more frequently at work).

    Thanks.

    I thank you all.
    I've added all your suggestions to my "list".
    But you've also shown that the experts all have different approaches to the same problem.
    I just keep on lernin...
