Is it OK to connect multiple diodes with the same part number in parallel?

It is not recommended to connect two diodes in parallel. Every diode has a slightly different forward voltage; even diodes with the same part number are not perfectly matched. If two diodes are connected in parallel, the one with the lower voltage drop will conduct most of the current. In high-current designs in which the current ratings of diodes can be a concern, use diodes with a higher current rating instead of connecting multiple diodes in parallel.
