Hi everyone. I'm trying to build a cheap voltage regulator to have a regulated voltage of 1.4V from a 3V source. I was trying to do something similar to what was presented here: http://www.reuk.co.uk/Zener-Diode-Voltage-Regulator.htm but I couldn't find a zener diode on Digikey with a Zener voltage of 1.4V (or .7V to put in series). Now I'm just looking for any through hole axial diode to get a 1.4 drop across. The problem is on Digikey, the parts say Forward Voltage .7V @ 1A or .7V @ 5A etc. I know I want .7V Forward Voltage, but how do I know what current will be going through the diodes? Thanks.
