1/ Go here:   http://uk.futureelectronics.com/en/Pages/index.aspx
2/ Click on "Discretes" in the Product Categories list on the left
3/ Select "In Stock" on the left

Thank you! That was incredibly... *helpful


4/ Select SOD-523 package style

In all seriousness... I wouldn't have thought to look for a SOD-523 when I asked about an 0603 package. Are you saying they are potentially interchangeable?

(Yes, yes... I will 1/ Open Google 2/ Look it up 3/ Get my callipers out, etc...)

5/ Select "Switching" category

As opposed to Small Signal, yeah OK

Wow - the search on this site really is more pedantic than... er... never mind ;)

6/ First result is Fairchild 1N4148WT


So - this is a better or worse choice in your opinion than?


*pedantic ;)
