    Could not bring up data sheet. Sounds like an emitter follower, in which case 11 V base to ground should be fine.

    Are you talking about the Vebo parameter?
    That's the maximum emitter to base voltage with the collector open (no connection). Yes, it is the reverse bias condition.

    Why don't you post your circuit, so we can get a better idea of what you're trying to do?

    Just a series regulator I want to build. There's nothing in particular I want to use this for, just experimenting.

    Your circuit will fry an 11V zener diode.

    The 50 watt 1N3310B? I do realize it would be pushing it rather hard.


    Ah yes, I found a new data sheet. It seems that the 1N3310B is rated for 3.9 amps max.

    What a stupid waste of power.

    Like I said, just experimenting.
