Diodes

Diodes are semiconductors that manage electricity flow. These devices use a built-in electric field that allows the current to flow through in one direction only. Current coming from the opposite direction is restricted. Diodes are equipped with two terminals called the cathode and anode. A forward biased diode lets current flow while a reverse biased diode functions as an insulator. Diodes are considered as the simplest of the many semiconductor components. Nevertheless, they pack a lot of power and are essential for a variety of applications, an example of which is the conversion of AC power to DC power.

Uses of Diodes

The following are some examples of the many uses of diodes:

  • As voltage regulators. Voltage regulators regulate input and output voltages despite supply fluctuations. As it always works in reversed biased, the Zener diode is capable of functioning as a simple voltage regulator.
  • As protection for reverse connection problems. Current that flows in the wrong direction (i.e. polarities are reversed) can lead to problems as it may inflict significant damage to other circuit components. Blocking diodes can serve as reverse current protection for some circuits.
  • As voltage stabilizers. A Zener diode, which is always in the reversed biased state, is capable of producing a stabilized voltage output.
  • As LEDs (light-emitting diodes). LEDs are modern applications that utilize a specific type of doping so they can create lights. When around a positive charge, the LEDs glow.
  • As power converters. As mentioned above, diodes are capable of switching from AC power to DC power. This function is specifically useful for electronics power supplies, like your laptop or tablet charger.
