    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?

    thanks

    connecting just E and C in the socket, it reads the same value for hFE.
    so, it got me thinking that hFE measure is not a transistor test for
    working/burned transistor...

    do you use hFE measure to see if a transistor is busted?

    thanks
