1.0A 1000V surface mount silicon rectifier M7 for general purpose
A diode is a one-way valve for electricity. Diodes allow flow of electricity in one direction. Most diodes have a painted line on one end showing the direction or flow. The negative side is normally white.
An SMT component is usually smaller than its through-hole counterpart because it has either smaller leads or no leads at all. It may have short pins or leads of various styles, flat contacts, a matrix of solder balls (BGAs), or terminations on the body of the component.

Difference between diode and rectifier:
|Definition||A diode is a type of electrical device that allows the current to move through it in only one direction.||Rectifiers are electronic devices that are used for converting AC voltage into unidirectional pulsating DC voltage. Diodes are often used in the design of rectifiers.|
|Uses||• Clipping and Clamping - to protect the circuits by putting limitations on the voltage
• Voltage rectifier – Turing AC into DC
• Voltage Multipliers
• Non-linear mixing of two voltages
|• They can be found regulating the power in computers and the electrical power in motor vehicles.
• They can also be used in battery chargers for rechargeable batteries, computer power supplies and vehicle batteries.
• Often used for AC to DC conversion,
• Can also be used in the detector of radios in order to perform radio demodulation.
|Types||• Junction diode (ordinary type)
• Light emitting (LED)
• Photodiodes (absorbs light, gives current)
• Schottky (high speed switch, low turn on voltage, Al. on Silicon)
• Tunnel (I vs. V slightly different than jd's, negative resistance!)
• Veractor (junction cap. varies with voltage)
• Zener (special junction diode, use reversed biased)
|• Half-wave rectifier - It is the simplest type of rectifier, which is made with just one diode.
• Full-wave rectifier - This rectifier is essentially made of two half-wave rectifiers, and can be made with two diodes and an earthed center tap on the transformer.
• Bridge rectifier - It makes use of four diodes in a bridge arrangement to achieve full-wave rectification.
|Device type||A diode only has 2 semi conductive regions, and therefore has 2 leads.||A rectifier assembly generally has multiple diodes, or more than two terminations.|
