You can download the full data sheet here 

I am a bit dubious of the information about the 2sc438 gleaned from the database at certainly 13 Watts of power dissipation from such a tiny package normally in the region of a fraction of a Watt seems odd. But this is the only source of information available and certainly if you no more about this type of 2sc438, drop me a line via the contact form.

Get the last one for just 99p.

Delivery within the UK is £2.99, I can send to Europe and Worldwide too; but please ask for a quote first, as rates vary greatly between countries and are prone to rapid price fluctuations. Items will be sent in a padded "Jiffy Bag" type envelope to ensure safe delivery.
