I know the Darlington configuration is supposed to sky rocket the beta value of the system, but this is only assuming the pair can handle that current right? It's a silly question but I just wanted to confirm... I have two low current capacity transistors (I_max= 0.2A). so the setup can only handle a max of... 0.4A? edit: Is the configuration able to draw and handle more current than the combined Imax or does it just give u a high beta value?
