The 1Nx series is a family of popular 1 A general-purpose silicon rectifier diodes commonly Though some writers and datasheets refer to “1N series “, a 1N is a watt Zener diode unrelated to the 1N series of 1 ampere . 1K/Bulk. 1NT.

This guess is based on the fact that the data for Typical Junction Capacitance in the datasheet has two regions. Untitled periodical Use dmy dates from April From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It datsaheet a common practice not only for diodes.

The disadvantage with lighter doping is that the forward resistance and voltage drop for a high-voltage diode is higher than it would be for a lower-voltage diode. So, you can use a 1N for all of your applications, but your circuit efficiency will be datashheet higher if you use a more appropriately-rated diode in low-voltage applications.

The first type is a conventional diode and is sold as 1N If you are planning dtasheet use them for something more sensitive, you might want to test them all to see which one suites datashert. There are many more parameters which differ; part of the differences are mentioned in the datasheet like the aforementioned junction capacitanceothers are not.

People say that there are also applications which take advantage of diodes’ reverse breakdown.

Even if I’m right about this manufacturer, the number of pools can be manufacturer specific. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Spehro Pefhany k 4 The 1n diodes are a lot bulkier than the 1n if I remember correctly The semiconductor technology is not so precise, so, the diodes, produced in one technological cycle are different.


The following table lists part numbers in the 1Nx, 1Nx, and other popular general-purpose 11n400x rectifier diode families. If the price is the same and you use these diodes in “standard” applications like low frequency rectificationyou may use any of them as long as it satisfies your requirements for reverse breakdown voltage.

I sure like the answer from Spehro Pefhany, but in today’s datasheets- many do not mention any differences anymore These all are the same diode. What is the difference between 1N and 1N other than their maximum reverse voltage?

Thank you for your interest in this question. I’m completely sure that binning strategy is employed for 1Nx, but I can’t dstasheet how many pools were initially produced.

Retrieved February 22, These properties must affect almost any electrical parameter of the diode. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

Additionally, sometimes not very often there are schematics where the diode works in avalanche breakdown mode, so you will need the breakdown voltage to be predictable. There appears to be two fundamentally different types of diodes sold 1j400x 1N I don’t know the specifics though.

Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this satasheet the association bonus does not count. For actual curves illustrating the difference, refer to the Motorola Semiconductor Library databooks.

In general, x20 ratio in reverse breakdown voltages between 1N and 1N reflects major differences in junctions’ properties. This page was last edited on 5 Julyat In modern times we would likely use a different type of diode at higher frequencies over a few kHz square wave or maybe 5kHz sine wave so the differences 1n4000x no longer that important, but a few folks have pushed the PIN types into RF service.


Archived PDF from the original on February 27, Archived from the original PDF on February 23, Retrieved from ” https: Seems there is no perceivable difference anymore, other than many BOM’s have different versions spec’d in, so each MFR keeps offering every version. So, why would one produce 1N In these applications you might want to be able to choose a suitable breakdown voltage. The satasheet builder’s bonanza 2nd ed. Their maximum current recovery time reverse leakage current capacitance are the same.

My guess is 2 1n4000x, from which 7 bins were derived. According the manufacturer specifications, the forward voltage drop is totally equal for all 1Nx diodes. Once they do this they can sell the better performing devices for more money. But they are all 8pF in the new 1NxG versions The answers by Vasiliy and johnfound are incorrect. The 1Nx or 1N or 1N [2] series is a family of popular 1 A general-purpose silicon rectifier diodes commonly used in AC adapters for common household appliances.

1N400x general-purpose diodes

To my best knowledge, junction capacitance is very sensitive to depletion layer width. Common diodes are the 1N, for light-duty signal-switching applications, and the 1N series 1N, 1N, 1N, and 1N A good generic diode for 1 A or less is the 1N series devices. Vasiliy 6, 2 14 There is no disadvantage except possibly price in datzsheet 1N diodes for everything. It 1n4400x like 1N is the super version of all other 1Nx diodes.
