Manufacturers : RF and microwave electronics : Diodes and electrodes

Diode is one of the most fundamental constituent devices in electronic systems. Each diode has properties that resemble a switch and may serve as a rectifier. Diodes having a rectifying function are the most fundamental semiconductor elements or components, and various types of diodes are known which have different junction structures. A diode comprises a PN junction formed by joining a block of P-type semiconductor with a block of N-type semiconductor. Current rectification of most home electrical appliances often relies on the special properties of a diode. Schottky diodes have been used for many years in the semiconductor industry in, for example, electronic systems, such as amplifiers, receivers, control and guidance systems, power and signal monitors, and as rectifiers and clamps in RF circuits. PN junction diodes have been used as a protection element for preventing semiconductor devices from being destroyed due to electrostatic discharge (ESD), a surge voltage, or a surge current. Protection diodes are used to protect integrated circuits, particularly CMOS circuits, from damage caused by electrostatic discharge. The light-emitting diode (LED) has advantages such as long lifetime, small size, low heat generation, low power consumption, high response speed, monochromic lighting ability, etc. and has been widely used in applications such as computer peripherals, clock displays, display panels, and many other 3C (computer, communication and consumer) products. Semiconductor laser diodes have been used as a pumping light source for optical fiber amplifiers and as a signal light source in the fiber optic systems. An electrode is a conductor through which electrical energy may pass when a circuit is completed, and is used to make contact with a nonmetallic part of a circuit (e.g. a semiconductor, an electrolyte or a vacuum). In an electrode, current enters or leaves an electrolytic cell at which there is a change from conduction by electrons to conduction by charged particles of matter or vice versa.
