Tag: but its applications
• A diode is simply a pn junction, but its applications are extensive in electronic circuits. • Three important characteristics of a diode are: – Forward voltage drop • Forward Bias, about .7 volts – Reverse voltage drop. • Depletion layer widens, usually the applied voltage – Reverse breakdown voltage. • Reverse voltage drop that will force current flow and in most cases destroy the diode. • A diode has two leads connected to the external circuit. • Since a diode behaves differently depending upon forward or reverse bias, it is critical to be able to distinguish the leads. • The anode connects to the p-type material, the cathode to the n-type material of the diode.
