Default 2SA798


There is another transistor(IC) , I am having problem finding replacement. I understand that this 2SA798 is an IC made up of 2 transistors. Can this component be modified.

Please assist

Yes, you can use 2 matched small signal PNP transistor to replace it...
& glued together also it is a common emitter...
try 2SA1015 or BC560 or many other

Thank you, I wish you happy
peace & G B U

Here's a whole thread on the matter. Looks like a matched + thermally connected pair of ZTX795s is the way to go, though the trusty BC560 usually works as well. Oddly enough, these EBC pinout parts appear to be a better fit mechanically than your more typical ECB Japanese transistors (2SA970, 2/KSA992 etc.).

Fairchild KSA992 will work beautifully. I've done it by installing two like this:


That's seen from the top. Solder the middle legs (emitters) together in the same hole. You get:


As on the original 2SA798 devices. Specs will be the same or better but compatible, too.

Thermally connected shouldn't be necessary. It's normal for these input pairs to be installed relatively far away from each other. I've certainly never seen something heat shrinked together (with thermal paste [on TO-92 devices!] no less) in a commercial design.
