Diode symbol : + - Ideal Model : Reverse Forward Study of Diodes shows that the mathematical model best suited for the study of diode is: FB: ) 1 ( / - = T nV v s e I i RB: s I i = saturation current proportional to cross section area ~ 10 -15 A Where q kT V T / = is the thermal potential, in which k is the Boltzman Constant, T is the Temperature in K and q is the magnitude of charge. K = 1.38x10 -23 J/K q = 1.6x10 -19 C Thermal potential at room temperature (20

Unformatted text preview: o C) is about 25 mv. has a value between 1 and 2 depending on the material. Unless specified use 1. If , 1 / T nV v e then i = T nV v s e I / Exponential model ) ln( s T I i nV v = Rapid analysis requires the use of ideal model. Sometimes, that is not precise enough. In that case you use the battery model or battery/ resistor model. RB FB V D0...
