p-n junction diode – formation, biasing circuit & curve

In the first two articles, we learned the basic things about semiconductor materials. You can read those articles by clicking on the Previous Article button at the end of this article. Now, we have entered into the applications of Semiconductors. Semiconductor materials are used to develop many electronic devices. A p-n junction diode is one … Read more

Applications of Zener diode as voltage regulator

In the previous two articles, we discussed the Semiconductor material and a semiconductor device p-n junction diode. We became to know that a normal P-N junction diode cannot operate at high reverse bias voltage because of a breakdown in diodes. To operate at high reverse bias voltage, a diode is to be designed specially. Zener … Read more
