Nexperia announced nine new power bipolar transistors, extending its portfolio of products in the thermally and electrically advantageous DPAK package to cover applications from 2 A to 8 A and from 45 V up to 100 V. The new MJD series parts are pin-to-pin compatible with other MJD devices in DPAK-package, and they also offer significant reliability benefits.
Available as automotive-qualified AEC-Q101 devices and industrial-grade parts, the new MJD series bipolar transistors are rated at 2 A 50 V (MJD2873/-Q), 3 A 100 V (MJD31CH-Q), 4 A 45 V (MJD148/-Q), and 6 A 100 V (MJD41C /-Q and MJD42C /-Q). The MJD31CH-Q is designed as a high-gain version. All parts offer class-leading DPAK package reliability performance, with an industry-standard footprint. The bipolar transistors suit a wide range of applications such as LED automotive lighting; backlight dimming in LCD displays; linear voltage regulators; relay replacement; motor drives and MOSFET drivers.
