2-6) Classify each of the following as n-type or p-t
You have a circuit that continues to destroy a diode every time you connect a new one.
Discuss what quantities you would need to check on a diode data sheet.
One of the first things to look at in this situation is the breakdown voltage. This would be
Discuss the advantage of using a bridge rectifier in a power supply as opposed to using a
half-wave or full-wave rectifier. Why is the bridge rectifier more efficient than the others?
Unlike a half-wave or full-wave rectifier, a bridge rectifier uses all
