60 V, 1 A NPN/NPN low VCEsat transistor

NPN/NPN low VCEsat transistor pair in a SOT457 (SC-74) Surface Mounted Device (SMD) plastic package.

PNP/PNP complement: PBSS5160DS-Q

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 due to less heat generation

  • Smaller required Printed-Circuit Board (PCB) area than for conventional transistors

  • Qualified according to AEC-Q101 and recommended for use in automotive applications


  • Dual low power switches (e.g. motors, fans)

  • Automotive applications

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.
