Thank you for your interest in this question. I recall seeing an increase in forward voltage in the over theabout thirty years ago unfortunately I no longer have the relevant data. Spehro Pefhany k 4 Archived PDF from the original on February 27, I satasheet there is some binning going on, but that is not all.

I can hardly believe that diode’s manufacturers just throw away poorly performing diodes and do not try to sell them 1n40x0 a less tolerant device.

It looks like 1N is the super version of all other 1Nx diodes.

I don’t know the specifics though. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. The following table lists part numbers in the 1Nx, 1Nx, and other popular general-purpose silicon rectifier diode families. 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.

Even if Datqsheet right about this manufacturer, the number of pools can be manufacturer specific. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site the association bonus does not count.

It is a common practice not only for diodes. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. 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.

Archived PDF from the original on February 23, The answers by Vasiliy and johnfound are incorrect. People say that there are also applications which take advantage of diodes’ reverse breakdown.

I sure like the answer from Spehro Pefhany, but in today’s datasheets- many do not mention any differences anymore There is no disadvantage except possibly price in using 1N diodes for everything. To my best knowledge, junction capacitance is very sensitive to depletion layer width.

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.

Views Read Edit View history. My guess is that years ago, when these diodes were just introduced and the semiconductor processes were not mature, the differences between different diodes were more pronounce.

The 1n diodes are a lot bulkier than the 1n if I remember correctly So, why would one produce 1N A good generic diode for 1 A or less is the 1N series devices. Vasiliy 6, 2 14 The difference between these diodes is mainly their reverse breakdown voltage. 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.

My guess is 2 pools, from which 7 bins were derived.

After sorting they are marked respectively. Manufacturers tend to represent these diodes as having exactly the same properties because the very fine differences daatsheet not important for main areas of employment of these diodes. I’m completely sure that binning strategy is employed for 1Nx, but I can’t say how many pools were initially produced.

In general, x20 ratio in reverse breakdown voltages between 1N and 1N reflects major differences in junctions’ properties. These devices are widely used and recommended for general-purpose use, e.

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 datawheet breakdown voltage.

But they are all 8pF in the new 1NxG versions 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.
