Future Market Insights
Power diodes are electronic components which allows the current to flow only in one direction. Hence, they acts as a one-way valve, which has different applications depending on the type and property of the diode utilized in the circuit. Power Diodes are basically a two-terminal P-N junction semiconductor device, consists of terminal Cathode (C) and Anode (A). These diodes are widely utilized for the conversion of alternating voltage into a continuous voltage or more commonly termed as rectification. Moreover, these electronic devices provide uncontrolled power rectification and are utilized in applications such as DC power supplies, battery charging, AC rectifiers and Inverters. Owing to their high voltage and current characteristics, they can also be utilized as snubber networks and free-wheeling diodes.
These type of diodes have basically P-I-N structure as compared to the signal diodes which have P-N structure. These type of diodes found numerous applications which include voltage clamping, rectifier and voltage multiplier etc. These type of device basically shows two types of characteristics which include V-I characteristics and reverse recovery characteristics.
