Diode fundamentals, characteristics and applications

Download or order our Diode Application Handbook. This Design Engineer’s Guide is a unique collection of technical materials and application examples. Providing a better understanding of diodes, their fundamentals, characteristics, and application insights.

Like all our Design Engineer’s Guides, the Diode Handbook is intended to be a practical, comprehensive, and up-to-date reference work written by engineers for engineers.

A fundamental reference work: Diode Application Handbook

The diode has come a long way, developed over 100 years ago. The considerations and implications of its usage have become as sophisticated as its transformation. Discrete diodes remain a very important and basic component of electronic systems. Their electrical and thermal properties as well as their reliability are decisive for the overall performance and robustness of the entire electronic system. There are a wide variety of diode technologies available in different packages and form factors.

This handbook provides useful guidance on common topics and issues that the design engineer is likely to encounter. Engineers interested in thermal properties, packaging, reliability, and applications will gain practical insights. The handbook is intended as a ‘go-to’ reference, for those looking for technical information, fundamentals and design ideas.

This reference work represents the collected knowledge of some of our industry’s most respected experts.
