MA856 question

Postby bobele3 » 26 Dec 2018, 09:18

Hi! I've brought some MA856 from Spanish supplier but one thing is make me suspicious.

On ebay I've found some diodes kits for KoT, most of them have 2 yellow stripes on MA856, mine only one.
Quick check on datasheet's and MA856 should have only one yellow mark, and MA858 two. That's confuse me actually as far as many ebay sellers selling "two stripes" diodes as MA856.

So which is which?
Can anyone help?

Merry Christmas! ;)

The 2nd stripe is the mojo version of the MA856 diode. Especially for corksniffers. If I were Analogman I'd laugh my ass off seeing all cloners of his bluesbreaker clone go anal over a silicon signal diode. :blackeye
Sorry. Plain out of planes.

unless you analyze them with a curve tracer,talking about colors,stripes,vendors,dimensions etc. is totally pointless.

914/4148 has pretty much the same characteristic
You won't hear the difference
