BCV26; BCV46

PNP Darlington transistors

PNP Darlington transistor in a SOT23 plastic package. NPN complements: BCV27 and BCV47.

Features and benefits

  • High current (max. 500 mA)
  • Low voltage (max. 60 V)
  • Very high DC current gain (min. 10000).
  • AEC-Q101 qualified


  • Where very high amplification is required.
