Diode is no stranger to any electronic lovers, that’s why it is important to learn how to test a diode to know it’s still good-working or not. In this article today, we are going to introduce the testing method of 11 different kinds of diodes.CatalogI. Testing of Normal DiodeII. Testing of Other 11 Types of Diodes2.1 Testing of Low-power Crystal Diodes2.2 Testing of Glass-sealed Silicon High-speed Switching Diodes2.3 Testing of Fast Recovery and Ultra-fast Recovery Diodes2.4 Testing of Bidirecti ...
When it comes to low-power, high-current, and ultra-high-speed semiconductor devices, many electronics hobbyists or engineers must first think of Schottky diodes (SBD). But do you really know how to use Schottky diodes? Compared with other diodes, what is special about Schottky diodes? This article will answer these questions for you and introduce Schottky diodes in details.This short video gives a brief introduction to Schottky DiodeCatalogI. Schottky Diode Brief IntroductionII. How does Schott ...
Light emitting diode (LED) is a light source that meets the requirements of green lighting. LEDs are safe, efficient, environmentally friendly, long-lived, responsive, small in size and robust in construction with many features that are unmatched by ordinary light-emitting devices.Moreover, it is one of the first semiconductor devices and is widely used. Currently, LEDs are widely used as indicators for various electronic products and as light sources for fiber optic communication.How dose a dio ...
The simplest semiconductor component, the diode, has an astonishing number of applications that are enabled by a number of practical and unique types of diodes that are vital in modern electronics.Now let's get start to learn about diodes.Applications of DiodesWhile only two pin semiconductor devices, there are a number of applications of diodes that are vital in modern electronics. Diodes are known for only allowing current to move in one direction through the component.This lets a diode ac ...
The world's smallest diode, the size of a single molecule, has been developed collaboratively by U.S. and Israeli researchers from the University of Georgia and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU)."Creating and characterizing the world's smallest diode is a significant milestone in the development of molecular electronic devices," explains Dr. Yoni Dubi, a researcher in the BGU Department of Chemistry and Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology. "It g ...
Induction cooking appliances commonly make use of resonant topologies which allow bidirectional current flow. Additionally they demand a discrete IGBT that performs best at switching frequencies from 18 to 40kHz and has low losses. Infineon has launched a family of discrete IGBTs to address these needs. The RC-E devices are cost optimised and specifically meet the demands of low- to mid-price range induction cookers and induction rice cookers.Monolithically integrated re ...
