/ Missing or different component ? /

by betterburnout on Fri Nov 01, 2013 1:58 pm

Hello from Paris France.
It looks like the " PNP transistor, EBC pinout Q5 " I received in the kit is different… Specially the legs.
They're completely straight. And it totally disturbs the Noob in me.
Cause they don't fit the circuit board as supposed to :/

The component I received.

On the component it is written 2907 however… As suggested in tutorial.
So, am I suppose to beeend the transistor's legs as the one shown in tutorial to fit the circuit ?
Which scaries the noob in me.

The transistor from the tutorial : http://learn.adafruit.com/assets/6286

Thank you for your help.

If it is marked 2907, it is the right part. It is a common part and there are several variations on the packaging. You can bend the leads to fit without any problems.
