In electronics, a diode is a two-terminal electronic component that conducts
primarily in one direction (asymmetric conductance); it has low (ideally zero) ...
As long as the voltage across the diode isn't negative, it'll “turn on” and conduct
current. Ideally* a diode would act like a short circuit (0V across it) if it was ...
What is a diode? This definition explains what a diode is, how it works and what
it's used for, such as the familiar LED (light-emitting diode) products.
What is a Diode? A diode is a device which only allows unidirectional flow of
current if operated within a rated specified voltage level. A diode only blocks
We're going to adopt a simplified model for the diode. Instead of the actual
voltage-current curve for the diode shown in the thin, lighter red, curved line
Forward biasing the p-n junction drives holes to the junction from the p-type
material and electrons to the junction from the n-type material. At the junction the
Diodes conduct current in one direction but not the other. We solve a diode circuit
graphically by plotting a diode i-v curve and resistor to find the intersection.
