2 The left hand diagram shows reverse bias, with positive on the cathode and negative on the anode (via the lamp). No current flows. The other diagram shows forward bias, with positive on the anode and negative on the cathode. A current flows. Practical Aspects of pn Junction anode cathode Forward bias Reversed bias

6 Diode Voltages A conducting diode has about 0.6 volts across if silicon, 0.3 volts if germanium. To forward bias a diode, the anode must be more positive than the cathode or LESS NEGATIVE. To reverse bias a diode, the anode must be less positive than the cathode or MORE NEGATIVE.

17 Zener Diode - Voltage Regulator (reverse biased) A Zener diode is a type of diode that permits current not only in the forward direction like a normal diode, but also in the reverse direction if the voltage is larger than the breakdown voltage known as "Zener knee voltage" or "Zener voltage".diodecurrentbreakdown voltage

24 Ideal diode Model Useful for circuits with more than one diode (1)Assume a state for each diode, either on or off -2 n combinations (2) Assume a short circuit for diode on and an open circuit for diode off (3) Check to see if the result is consistent with the assumed state for each diode (current must flow in the forward direction for diode on and the voltage across the diodes assumed to be off must be positive at the cathode – reverse bias) (4) If the results are consistent with the assumed states, the analysis is finished. Otherwise return to step (1) and choose a different combination of diode states.
