Electrical Symbols — Semiconductor Diodes

In electronics, a diode is a two-terminal electronic component that conducts primarily in one direction (asymmetric conductance); it has low (ideally zero) resistance to the flow of current in one direction, and high (ideally infinite) resistance in the other. A semiconductor diode is a crystalline piece of semiconductor material with a p–n junction connected to two electrical terminals. Today, most diodes are made of silicon, but other semiconductors such as selenium or germanium are sometimes used.

Most of the electrical symbols can be changed in their appearance, styles and colors according to users' requirements. Electrical symbols are used to represent various electrical and electronic devices in a schematic diagram of an electrical or electronic circuit.

The following table lists some semiconductor diodes electrical symbols in our electrical diagram software.

A semiconductor diode's current–voltage characteristic can be tailored by selecting the semiconductor materials and the doping impurities introduced into the materials during manufacture. These techniques are used to create special-purpose diodes that perform many different functions. For example, diodes are used to regulate voltage (Zener diodes), to protect circuits from high voltage surges (avalanche diodes), to electronically tune radio and TV receivers (varactor diodes), to generate radio-frequency oscillations (tunnel diodes, Gunn diodes, IMPATT diodes), and to produce light (light-emitting diodes). Tunnel, Gunn and IMPATT diodes exhibit negative resistance, which is useful in microwave and switching circuits.


How to Create an Electrical Diagram Using Semiconductor Diodes Library

  • Open ConceptDraw DIAGRAM new document page.
  • Select libraries from Electrical Engineering section.

    Libraries from Electrical Engineering section

  • There are a few different ways to place an object into your drawing:

    • Click on an object and then click on the document, at the place you want the object to be inserted.
    • Perform a drag-and-drop from the library to your document.
    • Double click on an object’s icon in the library to place an object in the center of your document.
  • Select the Smart Connector tool Smart Connector. To connect elements using this tool, drag the connector from one connect dot to another.You can use Layers to place connections on different layers.
  • Result: Schematic of Circuit.

What is landscape design? It's a floor plan but for an outdoor area. Same as a floor plan, a landscape design represents visually any site using scaled dimensions. The main purpose of landscape design is to plan the layout for an outdoor area no matter is it a personal site plan for your home or a commercial plan for business. It may also be handful when a new installation, repair or even an outdoor event is planning. It helps to calculate time and decide which materials should be used in your project. Landscape designs perfectly gives the property owner and landscape contractor better vision for cost estimation, helping to ensure the project time and budget.How to Draw a Landscape Design Plan *
