Where to use MPSA06

The MPSA06 is a general purpose NPN transistor that is commonly used in Amplifier applications. The Transistor can switching voltages up to 80V with a current value of less than 500mA, making it suitable for lower power switching applications. It also has a gain value of 100 and is most commonly used in Audio Amplifier circuits. 

This NPN transistor also has its counterpart PNP transistor the MPSA56, which makes it ideal for Push-pull and class B amplifier designs. Apart from this the transistor can also be used for switching low power devices.



  • General purpose switching 
  • Class B amplifiers
  • Pre-amplifier circuits
  • Push-Pull configuration circuits
