Switching diodes and rectifying diodes

I had an envelope full of SMD diodes arrive today. Three different types in three different sizes, so nine bundles. Unlabeled!

I’m not sure what they were thinking at the shop. I got them from here.

I managed to figure out that the ones marked ‘S4’ were the Schottky diodes (1N5819WS). I think the ones labeled ‘T4’ are the switching diodes (1N4148WS) and the ones labeled ‘T7’ and ‘A7’ are the rectifying diodes (1N4007), but I’m not sure of that yet.

I asked ChatGPT for help and it explained how I can devise a test circuit, so that’s on my TODO list for tomorrow.

300in1 diodes

I made some notes about my 300in1 diodes. I have switching diodes, rectifier diodes, zener diodes, and germanium diodes. One thing to note is that germanium diodes are supposed to have a forward voltage of 300mV. One diode I thought was a germanium diode (it was clear with two black bands but no other markings) had a forward voltage of 600mV, I’m not sure what’s up with that, so I put it in my “unknown parts” drawer.
