Zener Diode as a voltage regulator

zener diode voltage regulator

A Zener diode is a special purpose p-n junction diode that is designed to operate in the reverse direction. They are heavily doped p-n junction diode. Hence, it has very thin depletion region near the junction. When reverse voltage applied across the Zener diode a small reverse current flow through the device called reverse leakage current. … Read more
