Semiconductors: Diode 2 The current passes in only one direction. The conventional current passes only from the anode to the cathode.
Semiconductors: Diode Packages 3
Semiconductors: Diode (forward Bias) 4 The external voltage across the terminals of the diode is called the bias . The resistor in the figure is added to limit the current (Ohms law), so that it does not damage the diode with any excess current.
