Week #3: (9/17-21) Diode Applications

Post by rjagodowski »

We'll start off with Pages 4-8 here. We will discuss signal diodes, free-wheeling diodes, half-wave and full-wave rectifiers and other related diode circuits.

Here is another tutorial on Rectifier Circuits from play-hookey.com. On the first lecture we will discuss the Half-wave Rectifier & Full-wave Rectifier circuits, and begin to look at capacitor filtering of the output to reduce the A.C. ripple. On the second lecture we will continue to discuss filtering applications using Capacitors and Inductors and then take a look ahead to voltage regulators (zener & IC) and a brief introduction to switching power supplies.

Here's a short summary of linear and digital (switching) power supplies. Intro to Linear & Switching Power Supplies.

We will also discuss the lab handouts for next week posted here. Hardcopies of these exercises will be distributed in class on Thursday, 9/20 .

Next topics of discussion will be Clippers & Clampers.

Here's a link on Clippers & Clampers.

Additional clipper & clamper links to be posted soon.
