I thought " kickback" was a legal term for paymemts made to corrupt politicians for favors.
Not to be ficetious but I thought " kickback"was a legal term for paymemts made to corrupt politicians for favors."FLYBACK DIODE" is the standard conventionto my knowleldge but some people prefer themore verbose "BACKEMF DIODE" . As alreadyimplied , anybody who doesn't interpret anythingOTHER THAN just the word "diode" as implyiing"backemf diode" probably has no cb lue what"backemf" means. I would use a schottkey, (like the MBR40250TG) , because they sound cooler and the schematic symbol looks cooler and after all , if it's not cool, it's not electronics right ?
