Electronic Silicon Diode

What Are the Characteristics of an Ideal Silicon Diode?

A diode is an electrical switch commonly made of semiconductor material, such as silicon. It consists of two terminals: positive (anode) and negative (cathode). It is often used as a rectifier, which is a device that converts AC to DC with current flowing in one direction. Rectifiers can be found in electronic components such as radios, DC power supplies and high-voltage transmitters. Diodes take on many forms, such as vacuum tube diodes, semiconductor diodes and mercury-arc valves. A diode operates in conjunction with a resistor within a circuit.

Flyback Transformers

5 Common Applications of Flyback Transformers

A flyback transformers, also known as a line output transformer, stores energy from input voltage in switched-mode power supplies. It is useful for multiple electrical applications. At one time, these transformers were used to meet high voltage needs at high frequencies. They are now used for both DC to DC and AC to DC conversions.
