I have a circuit diagram which is using 1N914 diode, I don't have one so I searched for equivalents and found 1N4148 can be used in place of 1N914. Then I checked datasheets of both and their specs are exactly same. So why their are two different diodes with same specs and from same manufacturer?
So 1N914 and 1N4148 are same or I am missing something? Can I use 1N4148 in place of 1N914?
