What Type of Diode Did You Find Most Interesting to Learn About?

As we discussed in he tech spotlight article (Basics of Zener, LED, Schottky, Shockley, Step Recovery, Tunnel, Varactor, Crystal and Avalanche Diodes ), general-purpose diodes fashioned by a PN junction find use as protector devices in electronic circuits averse to reverse polarity, voltage limiter, and transient, among others. The common diode architecture is altered to achieve attributes needed for contemporary applications. The result is a diversity of diodes like Zener Diode, Tunnel Diode, Varactor Diode, Peltier Diode, LED, Schottky Diode, Shockley Diode, Crystal Diode, Avalanche Diode, and Step Recovery Diode.
