Unformatted text preview: ± Reverse-Bias Region (-V zk <v<0 ) ± i ≈-I s ± Practically we have leakage component current which makes “ i” to be voltage dependant and doubles for each 10 ° C rise in Temperature ± Breakdown Region (-V zk >v ) ± V ≈-V zk ± The diode acts like an ideal battery ± Current is determined by external circuit components ± Maximum power dissipation determine the maximum current of operation The diode i-v relationship with some scales expanded and others compressed in order to reveal details....
