I am reading the BAV99 datasheet from ON Semiconductor.
From the table on ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS (page 2)
(TA = 25°C unless otherwise noted) (Each Diode)
|IF = 1 mAdc||715mV|
|IF = 10 mAdc||855mV|
|IF = 50 mAdc||1.0V|
|IF = 150 mAdc||1.25V|
On page 3 there is the following VI curve graph:
Clearly at 25°C - 100mA is Vf = 0.9V.
There is huge difference between the table and the IV curve.
- Which source of information I should trust?
- Is this (typical) and (maximum) where the table guarantees the diode won't exceed Vf 1.0v at 50mA while the graph is just typical values?
