Click to see Why is this here?
As of August 2018 the State of California has changed the requirements of the “Prop 65” law. We now must list on our website any possible chemicals the can cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive problem.
As an example:
ABS plastic contains styrene
PVC wire insulation can contain Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP)
electrolytic capacitors can contain Ethylene glycol
Brass can contain Lead
flame retardant pc boards can contain Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA)
Aluminum alloys can contain Chromium
To put it simply we are a small company and do not have the resources to test every single part, so we list every thing as hazardous. Please recycle all electronic parts responsibly and under no circumstance eat, drink or smoke these parts and wash your hands after touching!
Excellant for following a buck or boost converter that backfeeds!
I used this to follow a 20A buck converter, that was draining over 60mA from a 12V VRLA battery, when de-energized. I only observed about a 200uA burden, with the supply off, and <30mV across it with a 4A load. CAUTION: Unlike a real diode, this device will allow reverse current for the first second or two if the output is connected to a battery!
