It is designed for general-purpose amplifier and switching applications and is often used in low-power circuits such as small signal amplifiers, voltage regulators, and LED drivers.


1. Low cost and readily available
2. Can be used for a wide range of general-purpose applications
3. Low noise and high gain make it suitable for use in small signal amplifiers


1. Limited maximum collector current and voltage, which may not be suitable for high-power applications

2. May not be as efficient as other transistor options due to its lower maximum voltage and current ratings

3. May require heat sinking for use in high-power applications

Absolute Maximum Ratings ( Ta = 25°C )

1. Collector-Base Voltage: Vcbo = 40V
2. Collector-Emitter Voltage : Vceo = 25V
