High-speed double diode

The BAV74 consists of two high-speed switching diodes with common cathodes, fabricated in planar technology, and encapsulated in a small SOT23 plastic SMD package.


  • Small plastic SMD package
  • High switching speed: max. 4 ns
  • Continuous reverse voltage: max. 50 V
  • Repetitive peak reverse voltage: max. 60 V
  • Repetitive peak forward current: max. 450 mA.
  • AEC-Q101 qualified

Target applications

  • High-speed switching in thick and thin-film circuits.
