    Hi all...

    a transistor "BD435" is giving me 440 in hFE test on the multimeter, when
    the tecnical data i've found tell me min=40 max=475...

    does this mean the transistor is really in good shape?
    can it be busted and still give a good hFE test result on the multimeter?

    the Hfe IS AN INPIRICAL NUMBER ONLY USED on applications. the meter will tell you good/bad but not how good or how bad.
