What is KBP206G? 600V, 2A, Birdge Rectifier

What is KBP206G?

It is a bridge rectifier diode that is commonly used in electronic circuits to convert alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC). It has a maximum voltage rating of 600 volts and a maximum current rating of 2 amperes.

The diode is housed in a standard DIP (dual in-line package) format, making it easy to work with and fit on printed circuit boards (PCBs). The KBP206G is commonly used in power supplies, lighting circuits, and other electronic devices that require rectification of AC to DC.

Advantages Vs Disadvantages


1. It is a common and widely available bridge rectifier diode, which makes it easy to find and use in electronic projects.

2. The diode has a high current rating of 2 amperes, which makes it suitable for use in circuits that require high current handling.

3. The bridge configuration allows the diode to rectify both the positive and negative halves of the AC wave, which simplifies circuit design and reduces the number of components needed.


1. It has a relatively low voltage rating of 600 volts, which may not be sufficient for some high-voltage applications.

2. The diode has a relatively high forward voltage drop, which may lead to increased power dissipation and reduced efficiency in some applications.

3. The DIP package may not be suitable for use in some high-density PCB designs that require smaller and more compact components.
