A diode is a semiconductor device which conducts in one direction. The functions of diodes are all the same except for the differences in maximum operating voltages and the maximum currents. An 1n5407 diode has 800 maximum operating voltage and 3 maximum currents. On electronic printed circuit boards (PCB), diodes are often marked with a “D”.
Altium Designer, with over 30 years of PCB experience, provides the Libraries panel to access any component in the library system. This panel enables you to browse and place components from the libraries directly into Altium Designer. Access to over 100 supply chain vendors makes it easy to find the right component at the right price, at the right time. If the diode has a short, you can quickly retrieve another without losing valuable time.
What Altium Designer can do for you:
Ensure component availability at design time, at the right price
Avoid missing a market window or being late with production
Live supplier data directly added to your components
Access to over 100 supply chain vendors, at your fingertips
