What is the difference between a diode and a Zener diode?


  Diode is an electronic device conduct current in one direction i.e. either in the forward direction or in the reverse direction. Today’s most commonly used diode is semiconductor diode.

  It is a specialized component with two electrodes i.e. anode and cathode and has high resistance to the flow of the current in one direction & low resistance in the other direction. Diodes can be used as oscillators, rectifiers, signal modulators and demodulators, switches, voltage regulators, signal limiters, signal mixers etc.

What is the difference between a diode and a Zener diode?

  Zener Diode:

  Zener diode is a special kind of diode which permits the flow of current in the forward direction as well as in reverse direction when the voltage is above a certain voltage known as breakdown or Zener voltage.

  Zener diode can be used to produce a stabilized voltage output. The main purpose of the voltage regulator is to maintain a constant voltage across a load irrespective of the variations in the applied input voltage and load current. This is the main reason behind using Zener diode as a voltage Regulator.

What is the difference between a diode and a Zener diode?

  Huixin as the leader of Semiconductor Industry, of course not only show you the difference between diode and zener diode. Huixin continue to research and develop our technology of diode production for better quality, lower cost of the product.
