What is a diode? Webster’s Dictionary: An electronic device that has two electrodes or terminals and is used especially as a rectifier. A unidirectional device that allows current to flow in one direction but not the other. Ideally, we regard a diode as short circuit when voltage applied to it in the forward manner is positive. Diode symbol P-N simplified physical structure Linearity?

Ideal Diode The ideal diode: (a) diode circuit symbol; (b) i-v characteristic; (c) equivalent circuit in the reverse direction; (d) equivalent circuit in the forward direction. ¾ What is the diode current in the forward direction? ¾ What is the diode voltage in the reverse direction? ¾ How can we control the above quantities?
