TN6718A TN6718A CB TO-226 E NPN General Purpose Amplifier This device is designed for general purpose medium power amplifiers and switches requiring collector currents to 1.0A. Sourced from Process 39. See TN6717A for characteristics. Absolute Maximum Ratings* Symbol TA = 25°C unless otherwise noted Parameter Value Units VCEO Collector-Emitter Voltage 100 V VCBO Collector-Base Voltage 100 V VEBO Emitter-Base Voltage 5 V IC Collector Current - Continuous 1.2 A TJ, Tstg Operating and Storage Junction Temperature Range -55 to +150 °C *These ratings are limiting values above which the serviceability of any semiconductor device may be impaired. NOTES: 1) These ratings are based on a maximum junction temperature of 150°C. 2) These are steady state limits. The factory should be consulted on applications involving pulsed or low duty cycle operations.
