I am using the configuration in picture and the MMBT5087 PNP transistor. I am not using the top base resistor, just the lower one, so there will be 5V on the base.
My question is: Using a 1K resistor will it saturate? And is it ok to apply 5V directly on the base or it might damage the device?
I want to use 1K to keep the base current as low as possible.
