A small outline transistor (SOT) is a family of small footprint, discrete surface mount transistor commonly used in consumer electronics. The most common SOT are SOT23 variations,[1] also manufacturers offer the nearly identical thin small outline transistor (TSOT) package, where lower height is important.[2][3] [4][5]

SOT23-3, SOT323, SOT416

The SOT23-3 package is very popular and a common package for transistors, and is also used for diodes and voltage regulators.[1]

SOT89-3

The SOT89-3 electrically only has three leads (contact/pin). The wide lead (tab) is physically part of the middle lead on the other side of the package. Some call this package a SOT89-4, since it visually appears to have four leads when looking down at the part.
