    low current bridge rectifier

    Hi all,

    I am looking for a smd bridge rectifier that can convert mill volts from magnetic inductance a convert to DC without much loss.
    Please suggest a part number that sees fit.

    Thanks

    Re: low current bridge rectifier

    A bridge rectifier suffers at least two diode drops so you won't find one for just a few mV. The best you will manage is four Schottky signal diodes (BAT85 for example). With very small signals you either have to amplify them first or use a "precision rectifier" circuit using an op-amp.
