Welcome to the Diodes!
This part explains what a diode is, its electrical symbol, working principle and so on, how it works and what it's used for.
There are a lot of different diode types, all with their own applications, characteristics and construction. This page lists the different diode types which are described on the diode guide.
Diodes are used in a wide variety of applications. This category contains pages explaining various diode applications in different electronic devices.
The process of circuit design can cover systems ranging from complex electronic systems all the way down to the individual diodes within an integrated circuit.
