Editor Note; All of the derating curves I've seen relating to transistor surface mount packages all appear identical, except that the vertical axis varies greatly. But they all start to be derated at 250C, with the curve falling off to zero power dissipation at 1500C.

An inactive package style does not imply that one may not be in service or used by a manufacturer. If the component has been in production since before the designation was retired, and continues to be produced than the same part designation will continued to be used. However if a new design is produced, that component will use the new JEDEC designation and not the older obsolete one.

Engineer Note;
The 'TO' in TO-3 stands for Transistor Outline.
The 'DO' in DO-8 stands for Diode Outline.
The 'SOT' stands for Small Outline Transistor.
