Sold - 1N60 Vintage Germanium Diodes - £0.99 for 10

There are a number of manufacturers who have made a 1N60 diode, from my research I have identified these as Germanium diodes with the following specifications:

Semiconductor material -Germanium
Forward voltage drop (Vf) - 1 V
Max Forward Currrent (Ifm) - 500 mA
Peak Inverse Voltage (PIV) - 50V
Leakage Current - 40 µA
Junction capacitance - TBC
Power Dissipation - 80 mW
Package type - Axial-B Glass Encapsulated

You can download the full data sheet here

The 1N60 has a low forward voltage drop, low power consumption and a very low noise level.

Get yours now, whilst stocks last, 10 for just 99p.

See and hear the 1N60 in action as used in the Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone effects pedal...
