For the negative halfcycle the diode is 1m5230 and Vo will be small. Zener Diode Breakdown Characteristics Ordinarily the reverse-bias blocking action of a PN junction allows only a small ‘leakage’ current to flow.

This is a newer product than the last item and one that I would use, though mW zeners tend to be voltage references, to be boosted by op-amps, etc. In this case the Zener is being used to set a ceiling on the output voltage from ucrve somewhat peculiar higher voltage circuit. Detailed comparison between the computed and analytical curves is left as an exercise, e.

I noticed it was outdated and the questions that followed led me here. But currents associated with other phenomena occurring in what is a very complex physical junction environment also can mask the leakage current. Circuits Zener Diode 1 M H Miller The second mechanism is a quantum mechanical effect more difficult to describe by a familiar analogy. Since the power supply itself tends to ‘see’ a fixed current, its terminal voltage changes little. Sign up using Facebook.

The data are shown using two scales, one to provide detail on the computed load voltage values and the other to provide some perspective on the overall effect of the regulation. On the other hand when the load draws the minimum current the increased current through the Zener the source current will not change much should not exceed the rated IZT. This is related to the dominance of one or the other of the two phenomena producing similar terminal breakdown characteristics.


Email Required, but never shown. Often you see 3 watt and 5 watt zener diodes as actual shunt voltage regulators for circuits that need mA or less of current. For use as voltage regulators and voltage references Zener diodes have largely been supplanted by IC voltage regulators and IC voltage references because the latter are so inexpensive and small compared to their counterparts of past eras.

Note that Vo is slightly negative diode threshold for forward-bias operation. As VS is increased the breakdown voltage VZ of idealized diode model is reached; because of the voltage-divider action VS will be somewhat larger than VZ when this occurs see figure. Hence, as a simplifying measure more than adequate to provide an appreciation of the regulating action and a good estimate of performance, the Zener breakdown characteristics are approximated as shown to the right of the circuit diagram above.

The coefficient is negative for a diode with a reference voltage below about 5 volts, otherwise it is positive. Note again that the scale in the figure is distorted for illustrative purposes. A test circuit as shown to the left is analyzed numerically using the PSpice computer analysis program.

As spike suppressors in certain inductive load situations. A detailed idealized-diode analysis is left as an exercise.


Home Crve Tags Users Unanswered. That does not mean you’d always need that. A computed set of regulation characteristics using a nonlinear diode mode is shown below for comparison to the calculated regulation cugve.


This variability of the power supply terminal voltage is described by the ‘regulation’ of the power supply, defined formally as the change in terminal voltage between ‘no load’ and ‘full load’ conditions, divided by the ‘no load’ voltage.

You may see it at a cheap price in bulk quantities from parts brokers but I would avoid it.

With such a low current this is more of a voltage reference, to be boosted by op-amps, etc. This is an older outdated zener, hence the higher bias current. For ordinary use diode breakdown is characterized simply by specification of a minimum reverse-bias breakdown voltage and current; the magnitude of the breakdown voltage is guaranteed to be no less and the current for a specified lower voltage no more than specified values.

The two parameters I’ve noted stand out. Do not confuse the idealized diode used in the model with the Zener diode whose characteristic is being modeled; the Zener diode characteristic is being approximated over a limited range of operation by a combination of idealized circuit element models.

This is when zener diodes come in handy. The following stage maybe a switching regulator or CMOS logic running on 15 volts but the source voltage is volts. You act like there’s a general concensus on what is the “best” component.
