2017-08-30 The Surface Mount 1N4148 Is Very Small

I bought some surface mount 1N4148 diodes.  They are so small I couldn’t find one when I dropped it on the bench!

Here’s a photo of one setting on top of a regular transistor.  It’s itty-bitty, teensy weensy!  It’s not much larger than a fly speck!  That’s it!  That tiny black rectangle sitting on top of what looks like a giant transistor but is only 5 mm wide.  That transistor is about as wide as a regular 1N4148, which is about 4 mm long.  The diode is only 2 mm long including the metal tabs.  Wow!
