Zener Diode

A diode that has been specially designed to break down at a particular voltage, consisting of a p-n junction with high doping concentrations on either side of the junction. It acts as a rectifier until the applied reverse voltage reaches a certain value, known as the Zener breakdown voltage, when the device becomes conducting. This effect occurs as

Zener diode

A Zener diode is a diode which allows current to flow in the forward direction in the same manner as an ideal diode, but also permits it to flow in the reverse direction when the voltage is above a certain value known as the breakdown voltage, `Zener knee voltage`, `Zener voltage`, `avalanche point`, or `peak inverse voltage`. The device w...
