Latest Updated:08/01/2005


What are the requirements (required characteristics), guaranteed values, and permissible values for elements to guarantee complementary use?


Even if complementary use is recommended, no particular guarantee items are set. Generally, a requested complementary characteristic item is the DC amplification rate (hFE), which is a current characteristic.
Other requested characteristic items for the designed circuit may differ. Therefore, in the case of complementary use, please compare the various characteristics and make your judgment accordingly.
