A family of MIL-PRF-19500 qualified small-signal transistors includes PNP and NPN devices for power and linear amplifier applications. To control cost in military and avionics applications, designers increasingly leverage commercial off-the-shelf devices. Rapid turnover in electronics makes obsolescence an ongoing problem, however. Available in JAN, JANTX and JANTXV quality levels, this product line from ON Semiconductor offers device and system level manufacturers new supply options.
The NPN switching transistors feature collector-emitter voltages of up to -60 V and continuous collection current of -600 mAdc. The low-power PNP transistors handle collector-emitter voltages of 80 V and collection current of 1 Adc. The components offer high reliability performance for harsh-environment applications like avionics, missile guidance, communications, and munitions.
The release is part of a planned 2011 rollout of MIL-PRF-19500-qualified devices, including Zener diodes, rectifiers, Schottky diodes, and additional transistors. Production quantities are available now through distributors.
