Diodes regionStep-Recovery Diode is a semiconductor junction diode

Diodes and Applications Types of DiodesDiode Type Symbol DescriptionZener Diode Designed for limiting voltage across terminals in reverse biasLight Emitting Diode A diode that emits light when there is forward currentPhotodiode A diode in which  the reverse current varies directly with the amount of lightLaser Diode Free electrons and holes available simultaneously in the region.Schottky Diode also known as hot-carrier diode, is a semiconductor diode formed by the junction of a semiconductor with a metal. It has a low forward voltage drop and a very fast switching action.PIN Diode a diode with a wide, undoped intrinsic semiconductor region between a p-type semiconductor and an n-type semiconductor regionStep-Recovery Diode is a semiconductor junction diode having the ability to generate extremely short pulsesTunnel Diode is a type of semiconductor that is capable of very fast operation, well into the microwave frequency region, made possible by the use of the quantum mechanical effect called tunneling.Current Regulator Diode an electronic device that limits current to a maximum specified value for the deviceVaractor Diode a diode that has a variable capacitance which is a function of the voltage that is impressed on its terminalsVacuum Diode is the simplest form of vacuum tube. It consists of two electrodes, a cathode, and an anode or plate. Rectifier Circuits Equations and WaveformsHalf-Wave RectifierCircuit Waveform   Peak Value of output:Vpout=Vpsec-0.7Average Value of output:Vavg=Vpout/?Diode peak inverse voltage:PIV=VpoutCenter-Tapped Full-wave RectifierCircuit Waveform   Peak Value of output:Vpout=Vpsec/2-0.7vAverage Value of output:Vavg=2Vpout/?Diode peak inverse voltage:PIV=2Vpout+0.7vFull Bridge RectifierCircuit Waveform   Peak Value of output:Vpout=Vpsec/2-1.4vAverage Value of output:Vavg=2Vpout/?Diode peak inverse voltage:PIV=2Vpout+0.7vApplication of DiodesDiode Name ApplicationSilicon Diode DiodeClamper Diode Limiter Biased Limiter Positive Limiter Negative Limitter DC Restorer Voltage Doubler Half-wave Doubler Full-wave Douvler Voltage Tripler Voltage QuaduplerSchottky Radio Frequency Recitifier SwitchZener Diode Regulator for Small CircuitsLED Light SourceIndicator LightPhoto Diode Converting light into electric currentPIN Diode Low to high frequency radios Switches for RF
