Abstract

This chapter considers diodes—in particular, semiconductor diodes. Diodes are non-linear devices that pass current much more easily in one direction than in the opposite direction. The emphasis here is to learn techniques for simple analysis for circuits that contain diodes and to look at some simple and useful diode circuits. For a more detailed description of semiconductor diodes and how they work, or if more precise circuit analysis is desired, the reader should refer to a more advanced text.
