Schottky Diode Basics and Characteristics

A Schottky diode is a unilateral, metal-semiconductor device, with a low forward voltage drop and fast switching capabilities. Its characteristics are almost similar to those of the conventional PN diode. However, the Schottky diodes have superior properties such as the low forward voltage drop, fast switching in addition to producing less noise. They are widely […]
