Diodes & Rectifiers

Diodes and rectifiers are electronic components that allow current to flow in one direction only, and they are widely used in electronic circuits for signal processing, power conversion, and protection.

A diode is a two-terminal electronic component that allows current to flow in one direction only. It consists of a P-N junction, which acts as a one-way valve for current flow. When the diode is forward-biased, it allows current to flow in the forward direction, while when it is reverse-biased, it blocks the current flow.

Rectifiers are electronic devices that convert AC voltage to DC voltage. They consist of one or more diodes arranged in a specific configuration, such as half-wave, full-wave, or bridge rectifier. Rectifiers allow the current to flow in only one direction, effectively converting the AC voltage to DC voltage.

Diodes and rectifiers are used in a wide range of applications, such as power supplies, battery chargers, voltage regulators, and signal processing circuits. They offer several advantages over other types of components, such as simplicity, efficiency, and reliability.

Diodes and rectifiers come in different package sizes and current ratings, depending on the application and the required performance. They can be integrated into a circuit board or mounted in a separate enclosure, depending on the application and the space available.
