diode is A very basic element of all electronics equipment we used in daily life....@..so lets see some basic but useful info about it..@>.i am not going to explain its characteristics and something else i only write some basic short intro which can be more useful compare to . heavy books@
diode is 2 terminal device.which main function is to block the current in one direction, and allow current to flow in the other direction. Current flowing through the diode is called forward current.
there are many type of diode like -Rectifier diodes
- Zener diodes
- Capacitance diodes
- Tunnel diodes
Rectifier diodes -- these are the most common, with its function described above.
Detector diodes -- these are more sensitive than normal rectifier diodes. They are used in radios and televisions to convert radio signals to audio or television signals.
Zener diodes -- These diodes are the opposites of the normal diodes, because they are designed to conduct current in the backwards (reverse) direction BUT only at a very precise voltage. Zener diodes are used to regulate voltages (to behave sort-of like a battery).
Capacitance diodes act as tunable capacitors and are also used in radios and TVs to allow electronic automatic tuning.
Tunnel diodes are used in oscillator circuits -http://www.indiabix.com/electronics-circuits/tunnel-diode-relaxation-oscillator/
now you can easily understand that heavy book .>>.@..so enjoy..@...... i provide u some basic info..@..it mAY be helpful to u..@..
