1N914 vs 1N4148

1N914 and 1N4148 diodes can be used interchangeably.

 

1N4148 is considered as advanced version of 1N914 but technically there is not much difference. Only difference is that 1n4148 has low leakage current than 1n914, but even for some manufacturers the leakage current is same for both the diodes.

 

For a number of devices digikey (notably Fairchild) lists the leakage current for the 1N4148 as 5 µA, the same as the 1N914. But for others (e.g. NXP) the leakage current is only 25 nA. Which would make the 1N4148 a better alternative to the 1N914.

FAQ

  • What is 1n914 diode?

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.

  • What is a signal diode used for?

Signal diodes are typically used to process information (electrical signals) in circuits, so they are only required to pass small currents of up to 100mA. General purpose signal diodes such as the 1N4148 are made from silicon and have a forward voltage drop of 0.7V.

  • What is the 1n4148 diode used for?

1N4148 is a standard diode made up of silicon and is used for extremely fast switching operations. It has two modes of operation named as: Forward Biased. Reverse Baised.

  • What happens when two zener diodes are connected in parallel?

If two Zener diodes are connected in parallel, the one with the lower Zener voltage will conduct most of the Zener current, possibly exceeding its allowable power dissipation.
