Avalanche Diode | Symbol, Characteristics & Applications

Like Zener diode, avalanche diode is a semiconductor diode that operates especially in the reverse-biased region. It is a type of PN junction diode having the same symbol as the Zener diode. The avalanche diode is designed in such a way that it can withstand the avalanche breakdown without being damaged by the suddenly and … Read more

Varactor Diode | Symbol, Characteristics & Applications

Varactor diode is a type of PN junction diode that behaves as a variable capacitor under varying reverse-biased voltage applied to its terminals. It shows this capacitive effect under reverse biased condition only. It has two terminals i.e. anode and cathode. It is also known by other names such as tunning diode or voltage variable … Read more

Difference between Microprocessor and Microcontroller

For beginners in electronics, microprocessors and microcontrollers may seem to be perplexing. Both of them have been designed for real-time applications and they share many common features while at the same time they have significant differences. Both the IC’s – i.e., the microprocessor and microcontroller cannot be distinguished by looking at them, however, if one … Read more
