Introduction The purpose of our third Electronics I lab was to study the characteristics and applications of silicon diodes. Procedures First, we had to connect one end of the circuit to a voltage source, varying from -10 to 10 volts. We connect this to a silicon diode, to a 1k resistor and then to the ground. You are measuring the output voltage in between the diode and the resistor and should start at 10 volts ending at -10 volts measuring the output voltage in increments of 1 volt. Next, you must take the circuit from before and switch the voltage source with the ground and then measure the output voltage from 10 volts to -10 volts going in increments of 1 volt. For the final circuit, you must connect one end to a voltage source, then to a 1k resistor and then to a pair of silicon diodes connected in parallel and then connected to the ground. This time you are only providing from -2 to 2 volts in increments of 0.2 volts and recording the measurements at the output.
