|Silicon High Voltage Rectifier Module - 1958-60
TI number: G00351
This module from the 1958-60 period consisted of a string of TI diodes of the 1N645 series (probably 1N649's) with current balancing resistors connected to achieve a breakdown voltage of 5,000 V.
Modules of this sort were a means of achieving voltage and current levels greater than possible in a single device with the then state-of-the-art.
