I am planning to replace the standard 1N400x rectifier diodes of my CD player with ON SEMICONDUCTOR MSRF156O soft recovery diodes (TO−220 FULLPAK package).
However, because the greater size of the new soft recovery diodes and space limitations in the PCB, I have to attach additional lead length to the MSRF1560 diodes to install these in the circuit.
This makes me wonder:
Could this greater distance between rectifier diodes and smoothing capacitors (8 - 10 cms approximately) REDUCE or COUNTERACT the benefits gained by installing soft recovery diodes in a circuit?
Thanks in advance for any input.
PS.: the standard 1N400x diodes of the player are located RIGHT NEXT to the smoothing capacitors

- using a rectifier bridge means that one of the diodes is turning off TWICE in each power cycle? - Tweekeng 18:20:30 01/13/10 (0)
