There are several of both kinds in production/use.Interesting, they have no Gball. Did n1chi@ stop using the Gball, or is this an older diode?
This helped me out, good diode divergence comparison! I would rep you, but I have to spread it around first.Have you tested output and divergence, say with a G2 at 10 feet?
NUBM44 with G2 is 2 inches at 15 feet
NUBM06 is 1.5 inches at 15 feet
and the 140/7875 is 0.75 inches at 15 feet.
With a wider block maybe the divergence is better? That would be a welcome change even if power was about the same.
Wow. That's insane to see, and would be even more insane to see a block of these things powered. Hopefully DTR gets to selling them soon, I'd like to see what he prices these at (per diode).I'll be surprised if it's under 9 watts.
Also subbing! I think they're canned btwOh my!!! Subbing!!! Canned diode or Gball?
