Definition of Diode working and application

PN junction diode symbol

The definition of diode is very simple, “A diode is a two-terminal polarized electronic component which mainly conducts current in one direction and blocks in other direction. Its resistance in one direction is low (ideally zero) and high (ideally infinite) resistance in the other direction.” There are various types of Diode like Zener, Schottky, tunnel, varactor, etc.. you must read this article Types of diode and symbol of Diode. Explanation: 1.) A diodes show’s such special behavior due to the junction formed between the two (N-type and P-type) materials used…
