Learn About Different Types of Diodes

A diode is a tiny electronic component used in almost all the electronic circuits to enable the flow of current in only one direction (unidirectional device). We can say that the usage of semiconductor materials to build the electronic components was started with diodes. Before the invention of diode there were with vacuum tubes, where the applications of both these devices are similar but the size occupied by the vacuum tube will be much greater than the diodes. The construction of vacuum tubes is a bit complex and they are difficult to maintain when compared with the semiconductor diodes.
