I am building a linear power supply. I need a bridge rectifier and the diodes I currently have can only handle up to a maximum of 1 amp, but I need 4-5 amps.
But I have a bunch of YG862C15R Schottky barrier diodes.
Can I somehow use them as a bridge rectifier or have I got this all wrong?
Since it only has three pins, two for the AC IN and only one for the DC OUT (I guess), won't there be any negative? Like in an IC rectifier which uses four pins. How do these work?
