Re: Transistor for 454A Horizontal Amp, and a manual
I wonder why Tektronix used such a fast transistor in the horizontaltoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
amplifier. The preceding stage also uses the same 2 GHz PNP. With a
150 MHz vertical bandwidth, maybe they had to cut the delay to start
the sweep as soon as possible. The vertical delay line is 140
nanoseconds in the 60 MHz 453A and 120 nanoseconds in the 150 MHz
The saturated switching times are irrelevant since the transistors
operate in their linear region continuously but any fast saturated
switch also has high Ft.
The NTE395 may be perfect and you can find them for a less than $5
each. What I would try first though is slower PNP like a PN3640 from
Mouser or an MPSH81 if you can find it since they may be fast enough
and I worry that the NTE395 might oscillate.
I would plan on changing the transistor on the opposite side as well
which is Q1048.

You might try to find an NTE395. It has most of the major specs that the 2N4261 has. The datasheet doesn't give switching times, but the Ft is in the right ballpark. Don't see it listed at Mouser or Digikey, but you might find it elsewhere. Good luck,
