Here is an image showing the pin diagram of this transistor.

Classification of hFE

The 2SC3992 transistor can have a current gain of 10 to 40. The gain of the 2SC3992-K will be in the range from 10 to 20, for the 2SC3992-L it will be in the range from 15 to 30, for the 2SC3992-M it will be in the range from 20 to 40.


Sometimes the "2S" prefix is not marked on the package - the 2SC3992 might only be marked "C3992".
