DZ is doing these tests. If it ends up that these diodes are "bluer", it will be a shame. I don't think that this diode is being used for anything else. It MAY be the one that was in the Toshiba A3 HD DVD players. GooeyGus found the diode in these units to pretty much follow the characteristic of the diode in the 0811. We have received word that they are already starting to "scrap" the A3 units. Somebody on alt.lasers got to harvest a bunch of them, but thousands of units were scheduled to be scrapped :'(brtaman said:Great news, glad you and pullbangdead were able to arrange these tests. It will give great insight into the nature of the 811 vs. 803 debate.
Maybe a frog burial or two is in order?
HD DVD lost. The year of promised "support" for the format is coming to a close. Enjoy the cheap diodes while we still can Blu-Ray is the new king.
