Part Name: Germanium (GE) Diode 1N-34A $50mA$ $65V$

Part Description: A diode is a fundamental electronic component that is used to control the direction of current in a given part of a circuit. Diodes have two terminals and a specific polarity, so make sure to pay attention to how you connect it in your circuits! The signal-rectifying diode is special because it has a significantly higher voltage and current capacity. For this reason, they are commonly used in power supply applications.
