EFD108 - The most used germanium diode in Romania (IPRS Baneasa)

Reading time: 3 minute Point diodes (like EFD108) can be considered the "ancestors" of Schottky diodes. They used to be called "Schottky microdiodes with germanium". Although constructive differs a lot, the operation is very close, the opening threshold is lower than the PN junction diodes with germanium (approx. 0.2V) and they do not have that "steep bend" in the opening area of ​​the junction diodes.
