Recommended diode for LNK304 PSU

Not open for further replies.

Hi, all!
I want to build the circuit suggested on page 4 of LNK304 datasheet, but I can´t find any place to buy the 1N4005GP diode.
Can anyone tell me if is it possible to use an equivalent diode?

Thank you!

use almost any 600v diode you like,..with at leasdt the same current rating....if you want it to be similar then use one with a same Vf rating. Also, if you want a posher one, use a "glass passivated" one.

Dont use a sic one, as they have higher Vf's

But any ultrafast, or standard silicon diode will do.
