I need to control a 6 volt 100w watt incandescent bulb with my Arduino. I was thinking of using a TIP35C transistor but I realized the 40mA(max) output of the pins on the Arduino would be inadequate.
Is it possible to use one transistor to drive another to achieve this effect? For example the Arduino switches a TIP120 which switches the TIP35C. If so how would this look?
Is this an overly complex way to do it?
