PNP GENERAL PURPOSE TRANSISTOR USMBC557 FEATURES Low current (max. 100 mA). Low voltage (max. 65 V). APPLICATIONS General purpose switching and amplification. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND SHORT APPLICATION NOTE USMBC557 is a general purpose PNP transistor offered in die form, and in a TO-92 or SOT54 plastic package. TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION: SEMICONDUCTOR-THIN FILM MANUFACTURING All thin film microwave products are manufactured using advanced semiconductors and thin film technologies including ultra-stable and self passivating Tantalum Nitride resistors, gold interconnect metallization and reliable MNOS capacitors to achieve excellent uniformity, performance and reliability. Thin film technology is the preferred solution for all applications that require low noise, long term stability and excellent performance at very high frequencies. US Microwaves employs proprietary thin film technologies for deposition of a wide range of resistive films with sheet resistance films from 1W/sq to 10,000W/sq. All US Microwaves products are available in die form and are ideal for high reliability hybrid and multi chip module applications.
