  • Low collector-emitter saturation voltage VCEsat
  • High collector current capability IC and ICM
  • High efficiency, reduces heat generation
  • Reduces printed-circuit board area required
  • Cost effective replacement for medium power transistor BCP55 and BCX55.
  • AEC-Q101 qualified

Target applications

  • Major application segments:
    • Automotive 42 V power
    • Telecom infrastructure
    • Industrial.
  • Power management:
    • DC-to-DC conversion
    • Supply line switching.
  • Peripheral driver
    • Driver in low supply voltage applications (e.g. lamps and LEDs)
    • Inductive load driver (e.g. relays, buzzers and motors).
