Nexperia recently introduced new high quality, high reliability automotive (AEC-Q101 compliant) and consumer/industrial-qualified MJD 3 A and 8 A power bipolar transistors. The product line includes eight parts in both 80 V and 100 V NPN and PNP versions.

These standard footprint devices now complement Nexperia's existing portfolio of high-performance bipolar power transistors and further expand its total power bipolar discrete device offering. Applications for these devices include: LED automotive lighting, backlight dimming in LCD displays, linear regulators, relay replacement, motor drivers, laser printers and MOSFET drivers.

“Nexperia is respected as a high-volume, high-quality supplier with a large customer base. Widening our bipolar transistor portfolio with these higher current MJD devices enables design engineers to benefit from the recognised Nexperia performance advantages,” Nexperia Product Manager Frank Matschullat said. “This supports industry’s desire to add efficiency to the supply chain and focus on few premium logistics suppliers such as Nexperia.”
