glass passivated MELF diode


Explanation:
This is a tough one! Glass diode and MELF diode can be found all over the place, but not together. MELF is an acronym for "Metal Electrode Leadless Face - a leadless cylindrical component, usually a diode, resistor, or capacitor that is metallized on two ends." See http://www.okinternational.com/glossary.html#m. For glass passivation (a plating procedure) see: http://www.diotec-usa.com/pageiv.html.
