Both diodes and transistors are types of semiconductor devices that find a wide range of applications in different electronic circuits such as clippers, clampers, oscillators, rectifiers and amplifiers, etc. Go through this article to get an overview of how diodes and transistors function and how they are different from each other.What is a Diode?A diode is a semiconductor switching device which is constructed by combining two layers of N-type and P-type semiconductor materials. For this reason, a diode is also called as PN junction diode. The circuit symbol of the diode is shown in Figure-1.A diode has only one PN-junction ... Read More
