The BC548 is a general-purpose NPN bipolar junction transistor commonly used in European and American electronic equipment. It is notably often the first type of bipolar transistor hobbyists encounter and is often featured in designs in hobby electronics magazines where a general-purpose transistor is required.

- DC Current Gain (hFE) is 800 maximum.
- Continuous Collector current (IC) is 500mA.
- Emitter Base Voltage (VBE) is 5V.
- Base Current(IB) is 5mA maximum.
