What are you using them for? There are feedback circuits (and feed-forward circuits) that, in some applications, can reduce the forward drop to essentially zero.BladeSabre said:I'm using BAT754 Schottky diodes, which have a forward voltage drop of 0.2V (at very small currents only). I've not come across anything better than that.
Edited because my question makes no sense.mrmeval said:Ordinary
An exotic MOS one. They make a difference in SMPS supplies.
Vishay has a nice selection of diodes.
Protection circuits for chips where the inputs can't go below -0.3V. I'd be very interested to hear about that though.What are you using them for? There are feedback circuits (and feed-forward circuits) that, in some applications, can reduce the forward drop to essentially zero.
"100's of mV" >= 0.2VSo I'm correct in my assumption that for a traditional two-terminal diode that we can only get down to 0.2V forward voltage typically using Germanium, however can get down into the regions of 100's of mV using MOS technology?
