Power Diode

A diode could be a semiconductor unit designed to conduct current in one direction. Diodes area unit the semiconductor having only 2 layers. Diodes two terminals. The standard signal diodes have a junction fashioned by semiconductor and semiconductor. The figure below diode and its symbol.

Power diode Features:

  1. Industry proven designs.
  2. Reliable.
  3. Fine quality.
  4. Longevity.

Characteristics of Power Diode. Cut-in voltage is that the worth of the minimum voltage for VA (anode voltage) to create the diode works in forwarding conducting mode. A cut-in voltage of the signal diode is zero.7 V whereas in power diode it’s one V. So, its typical forward conductivity drop is larger.
