Discrete POWER & Signal
NPN General Purpose Amplifier
This device is designed for use as a medium power amplifier
and switch requiring collector currents to 500 mA. Sourced
from Process 19. See PN2222A 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
