Abstract

This chapter introduces the diode. We have used light-emitting diodes (LEDs) in previous chapters, but have not really discussed their function except for emitting light. In this chapter, we are going to look at regular diodes, light-emitting diodes, and Zener diodes, to get a feel for what these devices are and how they might be used in circuits for more than just light.
