Sensibly equivalent¶ to:
The DD41 Mazda valve contains a pair of independent signal diodes with an internal screen and external metalisation. Clearly this valve was designed to operate to screen the signals present as much as possible.
Such a valve could be used as AM demodulators. It is probable that this valve was designed to operate above the then customary 455 KHz IF frequency. As the design dates from 1938 it could have been aimed at TV demodulation.
The reverse is plain zinc paint.
The classic envelope is 32 mm in diameter and excluding the MO base pins is 68 mm tall.
