Discrete POWER & Signal
NPN General Purpose Amplifier
This device is designed for use as general purpose amplifiers
and switches requiring collector currents to 100 mA. Sourced
from Process 23. See 2N3904 for characteristics.
Absolute Maximum Ratings* TA = 25°C unless otherwise noted
Collector Current - Continuous
Operating and Storage Junction Temperature Range
-55 to +150
*These ratings are limiting values above which the serviceability of any semiconductor device may be impaired.
1) These ratings are based on a maximum junction temperature of 150 degrees C.
2) These are steady state limits. The factory should be consulted on applications involving pulsed or low duty cycle operations.
Thermal Characteristics TA = 25°C unless otherwise noted
PD Total Device Dissipation
Derate above 25°C
