Obsolete Panasonic Transistor Array Parts

I've been trying to find a replacement for the BeagleBoard-Xm parts Q1 and Q2 transistor arrays. (Part #XP0421400L) Apparently this particular part is obsolete and no longer available. XP0421100L is the suggested replacement part, but is also now obsolete but with stock available. Unfortunately, the specification for the R2 resistor is 10K, where the original part's R2 is specified at 47K.

Toshiba part RN1907 was also recommended as a replacement, but the factory has never produced any of those particular chips. They are willing to build a minimum order, but that will be difficult unless someone wants the 2900 or so extra parts? :wink:

Does anyone know a suitable replacement part that's available? I've not been able to identify the required subset of the specifications that are required for the -Xm board's usage. I've listed the specifications for the part below.


The specifications from Digikey report the following for the specified part. (Table from http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=XP0421400LTR-ND)

I will have to look at this next week and see what I can decide.


We are going with this part number, Infineon BCR135SH6327XT.


Thanks Gerald!

Sorry it took a while. We had to find the part and then find stock before we could decide which one to use.
