I sure like the answer from Spehro Pefhany, but in today’s datasheets- many do not mention any differences anymore The difference between these diodes is mainly their reverse breakdown voltage.

I recall seeing an increase in forward voltage in the over theabout thirty years ago unfortunately I no longer have the relevant data. I don’t know the specifics though. There appears to be two fundamentally different types of diodes sold as 1N Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?

These all are the same diode.

-1NX Datasheet, PDF – Alldatasheet

It looks like 1N is the super version of all other 1Nx diodes. Diodes with higher reverse voltage ratings are intentionally manufactured with lighter doping so that the depletion region for a given reverse voltage is wider than it otherwise would be. There are applications which require more precision though. These properties must affect almost any electrical parameter of the diode.

It is a common practice not only for diodes. What is the difference between 1N and 1N other than their maximum reverse voltage?

In general, x20 ratio in reverse breakdown voltages between 1N and 1N reflects major differences in junctions’ properties. Vasiliy 6, 2 14 People say that there are also applications which take advantage of diodes’ reverse breakdown.

Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be xatasheet, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site the association bonus does not count. The answers by Vasiliy and johnfound are incorrect. Spehro Pefhany k 4 According the manufacturer specifications, the forward voltage drop is totally equal for all 1Nx diodes. 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.


They also have lower datahseet capacitance at all reverse bias voltages eg. As far as I see, all of their properties are same other than their maximum reverse voltages. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. My guess is 2 1b400x, from which 7 bins were derived.

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 The following table lists part numbers in the 1Nx, 1Nx, and other popular general-purpose silicon rectifier diode families. Archived from the original PDF on February 23, In these applications you might dstasheet to be able to choose a suitable breakdown voltage.

So, you can use a 1N for all of your applications, but your circuit efficiency will be slightly higher if you use a more appropriately-rated diode in low-voltage applications.

The 1n diodes are a lot bulkier than the 1n if I remember correctly It is possible that manufacture has changed and this is no longer true; I can’t see any dataseet evidence for it. Due to process variations, manufactured semiconductor devices may have different characteristics. I’m completely sure that binning strategy is employed for 1Nx, but I can’t say how many pools were initially produced.

For actual curves illustrating the difference, refer to the Motorola Semiconductor Library databooks. Additionally, sometimes not very often there are schematics where the diode works in avalanche datasheef mode, so you will need the breakdown voltage to be predictable. If 1N does the job alone, then why dataasheet the other versions still in the market?


Diode 1N4001

This guess is based on the fact that the data for Typical Junction Capacitance in the datasheet has two regions. I can hardly believe that diode’s manufacturers just throw away poorly performing diodes and do not try to sell them as a less tolerant device. Retrieved from ” https: In other projects Wikimedia Commons. A good generic diode for 1 A 1n400xx less is the 1N series devices. Common diodes are the 1N, for light-duty signal-switching applications, and the 1N series 1N, 1N, 1N, and 1N The robot builder’s bonanza 2nd ed.

After sorting they are marked respectively. One has to wonder if some parts are not even binned these days, but merely labelled as demand dictates, and propagated simply because they are foundational parts that will probably never go obsolete.

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 are no longer that important, but a few folks have pushed the PIN types into RF service. Archived Dtaasheet from the original on February 23, The first type is a conventional diode and is sold as 1N 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 1j400x voltage.

Retrieved February 27, But they are all 8pF in the new 1NxG versions Views Read Edit View history. Datazheet if I’m right about this manufacturer, the number of pools fatasheet be manufacturer specific.

To my best knowledge, junction capacitance is very sensitive to depletion layer width.
