Breakdown

Latest Updated:03/01/2006

Question:

What is breakdown voltage?

Answer:

If a voltage exceeding the rating is applied to a PN junction diode in the reverse direction, the current will suddenly increase at a certain point. This phenomenon is known as breakdown. In the breakdown area, even a very slight change in voltage will cause a sudden current increase.
