What is reverse breakdown voltage? The reverse breakdown voltage of a diode is the voltage at which the diode transitions from its normal, off-state behavior to a state of breakdown, allowing a significant reverse current to flow. In this breakdown region, the diode loses its insulating properties and behaves moreContinue Reading

Diodes are semiconductor devices that allow current to flow in one direction while blocking it in the opposite direction. They are typically made using materials such as silicon or germanium. While it is possible to create diodes using other semiconductor materials, carbon presents certain challenges that make it unsuitable forContinue Reading
