Ideal Diode Model.

    • The ideal small signal diode conducts current in one direction (forward-conducting) and blocks current in the other direction (reverse-blocking).
    • Signal Diodes are used in a wide variety of applications such as a switch in rectifiers, limiters, wave-shaping circuits.

    • The practical model 1 take into consideration the actual voltage drop across the diode that makes it ON. However, the model still neglects the diode internal resistance that is considered zero.
    • Signal Diodes are used in a wide variety of applications such as a switch in rectifiers, limiters, wave-shaping circuits.
    • The practical model 2 take into consideration the actual voltage drop across the diode that makes it ON.
    • Also, it takes into consideration the diode internal resistance.
