PNP General Purpose Amplifier
This device is designed for general purpose amplifier applications
at collector currents to 300 mA. Sourced from Process 73. See
MPSA56 for characteristics.
Absolute Maximum Ratings* TA = 25°C unless otherwise noted
IC 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.
TA = 25°C unless otherwise noted
