1 of 1 Diodes What is a Diode? A diode is an electrical "one-way" check valve that allows current to flow in one direction only. Diodes convert the sine wave input of incoming alternating current (AC) into the direct current output (DC) needed to charge batteries.
Circuits Zener Diode 1 M H Miller ZENER DIODE Introduction to Zener Diodes It was noted earlier that the reverse-bias saturation current of a general-purpose junction diode is so small that it ordinarily is masked by currents associated with high-resistance conducting paths across the junction.
ECE 2B Lab #1 1 Diode Circuits In this lab we will measure the I-V characteristics of diodes and LEDs and learn how to establish a desired bias condition (forward conduction current) using resistor networks.

[Diode Rectifier] The circuit below can be used to convert an AC voltage to DC. Assuming V1(t) = 5sin(2p60t) volts, sketch Vx(t). USE THE OFFSET DIODE MODEL in your analysis.
1 LAB Germanium Diode AM Radio 3.1 Introduction In this laboratory exercise you will build a germanium diode based AM (Medium Wave) radio. Earliest radios used simple diode detector circuits.
PIN Diode Distortion Model The beginning sections of this article were concerned with large signal operation and thermal considerations allowing the circuit designer to avoid conditions that would lead to significant changes in PIN diode performance or excessive power dissipation.
Take for instance this characteristic curve for an ordinary rectifying diode: Rectifying diode curve The trace is flat everywhere left of center where the applied voltage is negative, ...
