Silicon NPN Transistor
RF Power Output

The 2N3375 is an RF power transistor in a TO60 type case that employs a multi emitter electrode design. This feature together with a heavily diffused base matrix located between the individual emitters results in high RF current handling capability, high power gain, low base resistance, and low output capacitance. This device is intended for Class A, B, or C amplifier, oscillator, or frequency multiplier circuits and is specifically designed for operation in the VHF-UHF region.
