Overview of MPSA92 Transistor

The MPSA92 is a high voltage transistor, it can switch loads upto 300V with a very low trigger voltage (VBE) of only 5V, and this feature makes it suitable for digital electronics which operates at 5V. Apart from having high voltage rating of 300V they also have good operating speed of 50MHz with a low output capacitance of 3pF, but the trade off here is its low current gain of 50 hfe and low collector current of only 500mA.

 

Applications

  • Low power amplifiers
  • High voltage, low current switching
  • Audio or other signal amplifiers
