Diode-what are the important features?

Edit: Global Link Electronic (Shenzhen) Co.,Ltd    Date: Aug 13, 2015

Diodes are the most important features single-direction conductivity. In the circuit, the current only flows from the cathode of the diode, anode flow.

Electronic components industry organises a number of seminars on the electronics industry, as a member, learn a lot, so I'm going to detail a diode forward characteristic and reverse feature.

If you want diode purchase, we recommend looking for good company, with good products and services, wholesale diode will be more reassuring.

1, reverse characteristic

In electronic circuits, the anode of the diode at the cool end, negative at the hot end, little current in the diode, and diode in a State as at this time, this form of connection, known as reverse bias.

When the diode is reverse biased, there will still be a weak reverse current flows through the diode, known as leakage current. When the diode reverse voltage is increased to a certain value, reverse current increases considerably, the diode will lose single-direction conductivity, this State is called the breakdown of the diode.

2, positive characteristic

In electronic circuits, the anode of the diode at the hot end, negative at the low end, the diode will conduct this connection, known as the forward bias. Have to say, when the diode forward voltage is very small, diode still cannot pass, forward current flows through the diode is very weak.

Only when the voltage reaches a certain value (this value is called "threshold voltage" GE tube is approximately 0.2V, Silicon is about 0.6V), the diode conduction. Breakover diode voltages remain essentially unchanged (GE tube is approximately 0.3V, silicon tube is approximately 0.7V), referred to as diode "pressure drop".
