This is when zener diodes come in handy. Lower impedance means a more firm grip on the clamp voltage at a somewhat higher bias current. Because the Zener resistance rZ is not exactly zero the Zener voltage increases slightly as the diode current increases and this causes the supply current to decrease slightly.

Regulation computations are shown for several Circuits Zener Diode 5 M H Miller choices of load resistance and so load current. In general, the Zener reverse breakdown voltage is dependent on the reverse current actually made to flow thru the Zener in a given application. Sure, the ones with the “better” specs might be newer models. The regulating action is observable in the curves obtained by an analysis of the circuit using the piecewise-linear Zener diode approximation; these are drawn below.

To obtain an improved regulation the power supply will be made to provide a essentially constant current, large enough to provide at least the maximum load current needed. A test circuit as shown to the left is analyzed numerically using the PSpice computer analysis xurve. An illustrative breakdown characteristic is drawn to the left; the scale is exaggerated for clarity. When considering Zener current, is lower current generally better?

The reverse current rating of a Zener diode is somewhat analogous to the forward current rating of a regular diode in that the current rating you would need in a particular application will depend upon the application. FiddyOhm 2, 7 9. This is not something that happens automatically; it must be designed to be so by proper choice of element values. This is a newer product than the last item and one that I would use, though mW zeners tend to be voltage references, to be boosted by op-amps, 1n55230.

This calculation is particularly noteworthy here because it is rather different from the more familiar case of solving for specific element values common in introductory courses. Zener voltage is affected by cutve drive current, such that if the drive current is too low the zener voltage will be less than 1n52230 rated crve voltage.


The result of the calculation is not the value of the resistance to use but rather inequalities that specify a range of acceptable resistances, greater than some cufve but less than another value. For use as voltage regulators and curvr references Zener diodes have largely been supplanted by IC voltage regulators and IC voltage references because the latter are so inexpensive and small compared to their counterparts of past eras.

It depends on what sorts of things you expect vurve need it for. These phenomena occur in all semiconductor junction diodes. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. So, it pays to have as large a variety of voltages and current ratings on-hand as is practical and affordable. Sign up using Facebook. One mechanism is associated with the acceleration of carriers across the very strong junction electric field. In your list of 3 zener diodes of which are the same clamp voltage but different bias currents, some numbers really stand out.

The higher wattage zeners are for clamping surges on analog or digital inputs, and for cueve driving a low-current load such as CMOS logic or a switching regulator. The other solid line curve describes the circuit with the regulating elements inserted.

Since the power supply itself tends to ‘see’ a fixed current, its terminal voltage changes little.

You must “fit” the Zener to the application. By clicking “Post Your Answer”, you acknowledge that you have read our updated terms of serviceprivacy policy and cookie policyand that your continued use of the website curvw subject to these policies.

That 1N is what inspired my question – it’s specified in a little circuit I’m cure yet likely not for a finely tuned reason that depends on that specific old part. Maybe I just want the cheapest one.

This is the ‘breakdown’ part of the diode characteristic; ‘breakdown’ here refers to the overshadowing of the semiconductor junction behavior by other phenomena rather than to a destructive effect.

Two distinct phenomena, acting individually or concurrently depending on diode details, are involved in the breakdown phenomena. On the other hand when the load draws the minimum current the increased current through the Zener the source current will not change much should not exceed the rated IZT. This is all good information. It will have less of a grip on the clamp voltage but is OK for low-current general purpose use.


Post as a guest Name. An important implicit requirement not always recognized explicitly is that the regulating action depends on the assumed operation of the Zener diode in its breakdown region. Between these operating requirements, and of course knowing the nominal Zener diode voltage, an appropriate value of RB can be determined. The third guy want the best availability while the fourth guy only ucrve form Fairchild.

The regulated regulation curve also was computed, and is drawn below. 1n520 it should be clear that for the positive half-cycle of the sinusoidal input voltage the diode is reverse-biased and Vo will ‘stick’ at the breakdown voltage. As curbe rule, is a lower Zener 1b5230 generally better?

Both these actions are obtained by adding the Zener diode curbe ballast resistor RB to modify the load as seen by the supply. Quantum mechanics predicts the possibility of a spontaneous crossing of a semiconductor junction by carriers subject to a strong electric field. VS and RS represent the Thevenin equivalent circuit as seen looking back 1n52330 the terminals of a power supply, and RB and the Zener diode serve as curge control devices to regulate the voltage across the load RL.

The nominal Zener reference voltage of the diode is the reverse-bias voltage at 1n520 a manufacturerspecified ‘test’ current IZT flows, and typically represents a rated maximum diode current. This variability of the power supply terminal voltage is described by the ‘regulation’ of the power supply, defined formally as the change in terminal voltage between ‘no load’ and ‘full load’ conditions, divided by the ‘no load’ voltage.

When a smaller current is to be provided to the load the excess part of the constant power supply current will be diverted through the Zener diode.

I’m creating a small assortment for my parts box, and I wonder about Zener currents. The breakdown cutve of these Zener or voltage reference diodes receive special processing attention during their manufacture. Also the higher wattages go up to several hundred clamp volts, trading volts for milliamps to maintain the 3 to 5 watt limit.

Still, Zeners have their niche in certain applications.
