MUR460 Pinout

The following figure shows the pinout diagram of MUR460.

 

MUR460 Pinout

MUR460 Pinout

 

This diode rectifier comes with two terminals called anode and cathode.

 

The anode side is positive through which current enters the diode and the cathode side is negative through which current leaves the diode and current moves from the anode terminal to the cathode terminal.

How does MUR460 Work

The working of this component is simple and straightforward. When the voltage is applied to the rectifier diode in such a way the negative terminal of the battery is attached with the n-type semiconductor and the positive terminal of the battery is connected to the p-type semiconductor material, in this condition the diode is forward biased.

 

In this forward biased condition, the free electrons available in the n-type region of the semiconductor experience a repulsive force, and a large number of holes present in the p-type semiconductor also experience a repulsive force.

In this case, the electrons due to this repulsive force start moving from the n-type region to the p-type region and the holes in the p-type region start moving to the n-type region.

 

And the conduction is carried out due to these charge carriers i.e. holes in the p-region and the electrons in the n-region.

 

As this conduction is the result of the movement of free majority charge carriers in the diode, the reason the current in the forward biased condition is also called the majority current.

MUR460 Diode FAQ

① Which is the correct definition of a diode?

A diode is a device which only allows unidirectional flow of current if operated within a rated specified voltage level. A diode only blocks current in the reverse direction while the reverse voltage is within a limited range otherwise reverse barrier breaks and the voltage at which this breakdown occurs is called reverse breakdown voltage.

 

② Can a normal diode break down with a reverse voltage?

Zener diodes have a highly doped p-n junction. Normal diodes will also break down with a reverse voltage but the voltage and sharpness of the knee are not as well defined as for a Zener diode.

 

③ Which direction does a diode flow?

The current flowing through a diode can only go in one direction, and we call this state forward-bias. Since the current can only flow in one direction (forward-bias), we unofficially think of diodes as one-way electronic valves.
