I am trying to use a bipolar junction transistor to sink the current on an output pin:
simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab
But when the base of Q1 is connected to 0V, and the base of Q2 is connected to 5V, there seems to be a large amount of current going through Q2 (1.28 amps). The only possible path that the current could take is from the base of Q2 to the emitter of Q2.
UPDATE: I meant to say "The only possible path that the current could take is from the base of Q2 to the collector of Q2."
