This gives it high current gain (written β or hFE), and takes up less space than using two discrete transistors in the same configuration. The use of two separate transistors in an actual circuit is still very common, even though integrated packaged devices are available.\\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ ULN2803 package used as the output stage of several MERG Kits. \\ \\ \\ +Circuit diagram of Darlington configuration \\ {{:​glossary:​2803-schematic.png?​nolink&​ |}} {{ :​glossary:​2803-package.png?​nolink&​200|}} In electronics,​ the Darlington transistor is a semiconductor device which combines two bipolar transistors in tandem (often called a "​Darlington pair") in a single device so that the current amplified by the first is amplified further by the second transistor.
