In general the Zener voltage is a modest function of temperature; a representative temperature specification is 0. I wouldn’t normally use a Zener for a regulator but there are times and places for them even now.

It depends on what sorts of things you expect to need it for. FiddyOhm 2, 7 9.

The current seemed the most obvious, and I wasn’t sure if cuurve lower Zener current was a hallmark of newer device technology much like 74LS has long since been supplanted by newer technologies. Transistors can be used to boost the drive current of a zener diode, and you may see this in high-voltage power supplies. As VS is increased the curvd voltage VZ of idealized diode model is reached; because of the voltage-divider action VS will be somewhat larger than VZ when this occurs see figure.

For instance a 3. In the breakdown region of operation large 1n52300 changes occur with very small changes in reverse-bias voltage, similar to forward-bias operation but for quite different reasons. In this case the Zener is being used to set a ceiling on the output voltage from a somewhat peculiar ckrve voltage circuit.

Notice the low bias current but also the high impedance. And someone else needs the one with the lowest noise.

The coefficient is negative for a diode with a reference cirve below about 5 volts, otherwise it is positive. Often you see 3 watt and 5 watt zener diodes as actual shunt voltage regulators for circuits that need mA or less of current.


This provides a reference against which to display the effect of regulation. Thus although the Zener effect originally referred to the quantum mechanical phenomena the label Zener diode is applied almost universally whatever the details of the breakdown mechanism.

The nominal Zener reference voltage of the diode is the reverse-bias voltage at which a manufacturerspecified ‘test’ current IZT flows, and typically represents a rated maximum diode current. A computed set of regulation characteristics using a nonlinear diode mode is shown below for comparison to the calculated regulation characteristics. Between these operating requirements, and of course knowing the nominal Zener diode voltage, an appropriate value of RB can be determined.

One mechanism is associated with the acceleration of carriers across the very strong junction electric field. Lower impedance means a more firm grip on the clamp voltage at a somewhat higher bias current. What do the data sheets tell you about “other things”?

I got the answers I needed for the main question. Kinetic energy gained by an accelerated carrier, if sufficiently great, can cause additional impurity atom ionization during a collision with the atom. The result of the calculation is not the value of the resistance to use but rather 1n5320 that specify a range of acceptable 1n52230, greater than some value but less than another value.

Since the power supply itself tends to ‘see’ a fixed current, its terminal cueve changes little. Science Physics Electronics It was noted earlier that the reverse-bias saturation current of For use as voltage regulators and voltage 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.

The two parameters I’ve noted stand out. 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. 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.

The minimum usable current is conditioned by the necessity of operation above the knee, i. The Zener diode provides an approximation to a constant voltage source over a large current range, and RB provides a corrective voltage drop between the supply voltage generally larger than the Zener voltage and the Zener regulated load voltage. This is not something that happens automatically; it must be designed to be so by proper choice of element values.

I’m creating a small assortment for my parts box, and I wonder about Zener currents. For ordinary use diode breakdown is characterized simply by specification of a minimum reverse-bias breakdown voltage and current; the magnitude of the breakdown voltage is guaranteed to be no less and the current for a specified lower voltage no more than specified values. MartyMacGyver 1 5 Note the standard icon used to represent the Zener diode. Hence at full-load current one should design the circuit to provide at least a minimum Zener ‘keep-alive’ current of roughly 0.

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.

Each additional carrier is then also accelerated and may cause additional ionization; the ionization grows exponentially. Sure, the ones with the “better” specs might be newer models. It will have less of a grip on the clamp voltage but is OK for low-current general purpose use. 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.

However if a sufficiently large reverse-bias is applied other junction phenomena develop which dominate the leakage current, allowing in effect much larger 15230 currents. Do not confuse the idealized diode used in the model with the Zener diode 1b5230 characteristic is being modeled; the Zener diode characteristic is being approximated over a limited range of operation by a combination of idealized circuit element models.

Note that Vo is slightly negative diode threshold for forward-bias operation.
