MOS-FET for inverse-polarity protection
Saturday, 13. December 2008

Diodes are often used to realize inverse-polarity protection. For circuits with high input currents the forward voltage of the diode can lead to a very high power dissipation of the inverse-polarity protection.


Voltage Characteristics Of Z-diodes
Wednesday, 16. July 2008

Z-Diodes are often used for simple voltage stabilized circuits. It is very important to use the Z-diode with the correct parameters.
This article shows an example for the voltage characteristics of two Z-diodes.
