I'm not sure what should be the correct procedure to obtain a component's datasheet starting from the component's package code.
I searched in the other questions, but I found mostly people asking what is a certain component, while I'd be interested in knowing the general procedure to follow to identify an unknown component.
In some cases, for complex components as ICs, a google search of the code shown on the package is sufficient to obtain the relevant datasheet, but I had less success with components as transistors, mosfets and so on.
An example: this component is identified as Q1 in the board, leading to think it is a mosfet. BTW, the terminals are identified as "B, C, E", as it was a transistor, and not "G, S, D" as I was expecting. In this case I would try some google searches with the following strings:
- GS H 2053 F 01 datasheet
- 2053 Transistor datasheet
- 2053 Mosfet datasheet
but none of them would show relevant results. Is there any coding convention for this kind of component that can be useful to know for a better search?
