Diodes & Rectifiers

A diode is a semiconductor device with two terminals: an anode (positive) and a cathode (negative). Its primary function is to allow current to flow in one direction while blocking it in the opposite direction. This property is known as rectification, and diodes are commonly used in rectifier circuits to convert alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC). Diodes also find applications in signal demodulation, voltage regulation, and protection circuits.

Rectifiers are electronic circuits or devices that convert AC to DC by allowing current flow in one direction. While diodes are the essential components in rectifiers, rectifier circuits can consist of single diodes (half-wave rectifiers) or multiple diodes in specific configurations (full-wave rectifiers). Rectifiers are vital in power supply applications where a steady DC voltage is required for electronic devices. They play a crucial role in converting the AC power from the electrical grid into a usable form for various electronic systems.

In summary, diodes are the basic semiconductor components with a one-way current flow property, while rectifiers are circuits or devices that leverage diodes to convert AC to DC. Both diodes and rectifiers are foundational elements in electronic systems, contributing to signal processing, power conversion, and overall circuit functionality.
