what is this transistor? Answered

i found this transistor in an old genius ps2 mouse (the connection not play station!)
it looks like any normal one
i've searched google and data sheets searching for it nothing came with any information (one of them said this is a DC motor!)
written on it:

536
f   1A

exactly.
so is it npn or pnp
is it power,audio,or general purpose

It's a cheap general purpose NPN. If I remember right that is - I either had a few or still do somewhere.

A transistor is a semiconductor device used to amplify and switch electronic signals. It is composed of a semiconductor material with at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. A voltage or current applied to one pair of the transistor's terminals changes the current flowing through another pair of terminals. Because the controlled (output) power can be much more than the controlling (input) power, a transistor can amplify a signal. Today, some transistors are packaged individually, but many more are found embedded in integrated circuits.

I got a bunch of those too.
they are hardly visible
PNPN = SCR Static Condensing Resistor.
