40 V low VCEsat NPN/PNP transistor

NPN/PNP low VCEsat transistor pair in a SOT457 (SC-74) plastic package.

Features and benefits

  • Low collector-emitter saturation voltage VCEsat

  • High collector current capability IC and ICM

  • High collector current gain hFE at high IC

  • High efficiency leading to reduced heat generation

  • Reduced printed-circuit board area requirements.

  • AEC-Q101 qualified


  • Power management:

    • Complementary MOSFET driver

    • Dual supply line switching.

  • Peripheral driver:

    • Half and full bridge motor drivers

    • Multi-phase stepper motor driver.

As a Nexperia customer you can order samples via our sales organization.

If you do not have a direct account with Nexperia our network of global and regional distributors is available and equipped to support you with Nexperia samples. Check out the list of official distributors.

How does it work?

The interactive datasheets are based on the Nexperia MOSFET precision electrothermal models. With our interactive datasheets you can simply specify your own conditions interactively. Start by changing the values of the conditions. You can do this by using the sliders in the condition fields. By dragging the sliders you will see how the MOSFET will perform at the new conditions set.
