Diodes, rectifiers

Diode is 2 terminal device used in electronic devices. Diode conducts current in one direction and block in other. it is commonly used as rectifier and reverse current flow protection in a circuit. Subset of Diode is Zener diode and it is used for voltage regulation in electronic circuit.
   A bridge rectifier is an arrangement of four or more diodes in a bridge circuit configuration which provides the same output polarity for either input polarity. It is used for converting an alternating current (AC) input into a direct current (DC) output. A bridge rectifier provides full-wave rectification from a two-wire AC input, therefore resulting in lower weight and cost when compared to a rectifier with a 3-wire input from a transformer with a center-tapped secondary winding.

Diodes, rectifiers


  • General Purpose Diodes
  • Zener diodes

    A special type of semiconductor device, a Zener diode not only allows current flow in the forward direction, but also enables flow in the reverse direction when the voltage is above a certain value, which is known as the Zener voltage

  • Schottky diodes

    A Schottky diode, also known as hot carrier diode, is a diode that has low forward voltage drop and a very fast switching action.That makes them very useful for reverse voltage protection in order to increase the overall efficiency of the  circuits.

  • TVS

    A transient voltage suppression diode (TVS diode) offers improved circuit protection by diverting the voltage spikes in a circuit. It also provides damage control from electrostatic discharge.

  • Fast Diodes
  • Bridge Rectifier

    A rectifier is an electrical device that is used to convert alternating current to direct current. Since electronic circuits usually require direct current to operate and alternating current is used to distribute electrical energy, a rectifier is a part of most electrical devices and consumer electronics devices powered from the mains. Rectifiers are also widely used in power supply systems of electric traction vehicles (e.g. for driving locomotives, trams, trolleybuses or subway cars).
