The RCA-40366, 40367, 40368, 40369, and 40385 are
high·reliability versions of the RCA·2N2102, 2N1482,
2N1486, 2N1490 and 2N3439*, respectively. These tran·
sistors are intended for medium- and high·power switching
and amplifier applications in military and industrial
The 40366 and 40385 are silicon n·p-n types with a power·
dissipation capability of 5 watts each. The 40367 is a silicon
n-p·n hometaxial type with a power-dissipation capability of
5 watts. These devices are available with either 1-1,~·inch
leads (TO·5 package) or Y,·inch leads (TO-39 package).
The 40368 is a silicon n-p-n hometaxial type in a JEDEC
TO-8 package with a power-dissipation capability of 25
The .40369 is a silicon n-p-n hometaxial type in the popular
JEDEC.TO-3 package and has a dissipation capability of 75
The 40366, the high-reliability version of the 2N2102,
features linear beta characteristics which are controlled over
. a wide range of collector currents (0.01 mA to 1 A).
The 40367, 40368; 'and ·40369, the high-reliability versions
of the 2N1482, 2N1486, and 2N1490, respectively, feature
rugged construction, low saturation voltage, and high beta at
high currents, and are designed to assure freedom from
forward·bias second breakdown when operated with speci-
Typical applications for these transistors include: power-
switching circuits such as dc-to-dc converters, inverters,
choppers, solenoid- and relay-controls; oscillator, regulator,
and pulse-amplifier circuits; Class A and Class B push-pull
audio- and servo-amplifiers.
