Zener diode characteristics and applications

Zener diode is a reverse-biased heavily doped silicon diode named after the invention by C.Zener. Zener diode is specially designed to operate in the breakdown region. The doping level of silicon diodes can be varied as per breakdown voltages needed from 2V to 1000 V.  The maximum reverse bias applied before entering into the Zener … Continue reading Zener diode characteristics and applications
