Diode - Home

A diode is an electronic component that is used to allow an electric current to flow in one direction but not in the other. This is useful for things like converting AC into DC, preventing a battery discharging back into a solar panel when the sun goes down.

Early diodes were made from light bulb shaped Thermionic Valves, but were soon replaced by modern silicon diodes because of their superior efficiency, smaller size and robustness.
