Diode - General purpose rectifier, 1A, 1N400X
A semiconductor device which passes current in the forward direction (from anode to cathode), and blocks current in the opposite direction.
Starting at $0.15 Diode - standard recovery rectifier, 3A, 1000V, 1N5408 1N5408 Diode. Lead mounted standard recovery rectifiers are designed for use in power supplies and other applications having need of a device with the following features: • High Current to Small Size • High Surge Current Capability • Low Forward Voltage Drop$0.38
Diode - 1N34A Germanium, low leakage
The 1N34A Germanium diode is an old standby in electronics. Widely used for detecting the rectifying efficiency or for switching on a radio, TV or stereo etc.
$1.75 Diode - 1N5817, Schottky, High Switching Speed Schottky diode with low forward voltage drop and high switching speeds.$0.15
Diode - Zener, 1W, 5% Tolerance
A semiconductor device that, above a certain reverse voltage(the zener value) has a sudden rise in current. If forward biased, the diode is an ordinary rectifier. When reverse biased, it exhibits a sharp break in its current-voltage graph. Voltage across the diode remains essentially constant for any further increase of reverse current.
Starting at $0.20 Diode - small signal fast switching, 1N4148A A semiconductor device which passes current in the forward direction(from anode to cathode), and blocks current in the opposite direction. For extreme fast switches.$0.20
Diode - 1N914, Small Signal
The 1N914 is a small signal diode similar to the 1N4148 and is common in many older electronics. The 1N914 is general purpose and can be used in a multitude of different applications.
$0.18 Diode - BAT41, Schottky, Small Signal The BAT41 is a schottky diode used in many DIY projects. General purpose metal to silicon diode featuring very low turn-on voltage and fast switching. This device has integrated protection against excessive voltage such as electrostatic discharges.$0.28
Diode - Zener, 5 Watt, ±5% tolerance
5W zener diodes that are great for use in tube amps. These are commonly used to drop B+ voltages for tube modification compatibility or to create low power modes for the amp. A zener is a semiconductor device that, above a certain reverse voltage(the zener value) has a sudden rise in current. If forward biased, the diode is an ordinary rectifier. When reverse biased, it exhibits a sharp break in its current-voltage graph. Voltage across the diode remains essentially constant for any further increase of reverse current.
$0.55 Diode - Silicon Rectifier, 3A, 400V, 1N5404 A semiconductor device which passes current in the forward direction(from anode to cathode), and blocks current in the opposite direction.$0.35
