Content for 1N914


The 1N914 is a small signal diode which can handle low voltage and low current. The diode can switch at high speed and hence normal used in switching applications and not in rectifier applications. For 1N914 Diode, the maximum current carrying capacity is 300mA it can withstand peaks up to 4A. The specialty of this diode is its fast recovery time of 8ns at a forward current of 10mA, hence this diode is used in places where fast switching are involved. The diode is very similar to the 1N4148 Diode except that this diode can withstand high reverse currents.

Capacitor Leakage Tester

“This tester can be used to check smaller value capacitors to see if they have leakage at their rated voltages. It can also be used to test insulation resistance in wires or to test a diode’s reverse breakdown characteristics …

The Cardboard Computer - IO is my name

“My goal is a 4-bit CPU using recycled cardboard substrate and Diode Transistor Logic. This will develop into an educational platform for me. Attempt to build a four bit computer using recycled, re-purposed and just plain junk as the main …
