The 2N3906 is a PNP transistor, it has a gain value of 110 to 300, this value determines the amplification capacity of the transistor. Maximum collector current is 200mA, and the base biasing current (IB) should be limited to 5mA.
Collector-Emitter (VCE) and Base-Emitter (VBE) could be 40 and 5 V respectively in saturation mode. When base current is removed the transistor becomes fully off, this stage is called as the Cut-off Region and the Base Emitter voltage could be around 5V.
The 2N3906 is a commonly used PNP transistor. It’s similar to the BC557 transistor except for that it has high collector to emitter voltage. It has a gain value of only 300, hence not suitable for amplifier circuits
