Good-Ark Semiconductor distributes new current regulating diodes through New Yorker Electronics

18 April 2019

New Yorker Electronics is now distributing the new Good-Ark Semiconductor GCR Series of current regulating diodes, used primarily for current stabilization and current limiting. The new Good-Ark device supplies a Source: New Yorker ElectronicsSource: New Yorker Electronicsconstant current to an electric circuit, even when power supply voltage fluctuations or load impedance fluctuations occur.

Current regulating (or current limiting) diodes permit a current passing through them to rise to a certain value, and then level off at a specific value. The Good-Ark GCR diode has a negative temperature coefficient in order to protect the LED at high temperatures. It maintains excellent current regulation throughout the entire temperature range of -40° C to 150° C.

This surface-mount diode also has high dynamic impedance at the frequency of maximum value. The Good-Ark HiRel current regulating diodes regulate currents over a broad voltage range, with the series running from 0.1 mA thru 18 mA. They are available in 16 different voltage options, all housed in the SOD-123FL package. They are typically used in instrumentation and lighting applications.

Features and benefits:

  • Negative temperature coefficient capability
  • Excellent current regulation throughout temperature range
  • High reliability
  • High dynamic impedance


  • Instrumentation
  • High-accuracy meters
  • Measurement equipment
