Description: This is the BC337, an NPN silicon BJT (Bipolar Junction Transistor). This little transistor can help in your project by being used to help drive large loads or amplifying or switching applications. The BC337 is specifically rated at 50V and 800mA max.

Note: The BC337 is a drop-in replacement for the P2N2222A Transistor

    Any reason why this transistor is not in the general IC category with all the other transistors?

  • That’s a pretty steep price for a general-purpose transistor (even when it has good specs). At least I would expect a discount for quantities. At I pay 0.08 euros (about 0.07 dollar) for one, 0.06 euros (about 0.05 dollar) @100.

    • This is one of those things that if you only need 1 or 2 and are already placing an order it is nice to grab and not have to pay shipping from Digikey or somewhere else. If you need large quantities I’d definitely go somewhere else. Feel free to email our techsupport team if you have any questions on this including a link to this part on Digikey.

  • The datasheet link isn’t working. Just a heads up.

  • I’d like to use this to switch 5V DC, using a 3.3V signal from a Raspberry Pi. Based on the data sheet I think it’s suitable but wondering if anyone can confirm.

    • Well, it’s been 4 months, but yes, it’ll totally work. And it can handle a good deal of current.
