General purpose diodes

The BAV20 and BAV21 are switching diodes fabricated in planar technology, and encapsulated in hermetically sealed leaded glass SOD27 (DO-35) packages.


  • Hermetically sealed leaded glass SOD27 (DO-35) package
  • Switching speed: max. 50 ns
  • General application
  • Continuous reverse voltage: max. 150 V, 200 V
  • Repetitive peak reverse voltage: max. 200 V, 250 V
  • Repetitive peak forward current: max. 625 mA.

Target applications

  • General purposes in industrial equipment e.g. oscilloscopes, digital voltmeters and video output stages in colour television.
