New TMR Report Explores Impact of COVID-19 Outbreak on Signal Diode Industry Share

Signal Diode Market: Introduction

  • Signal diodes are the non-linear semiconductor devices used in electronic circuits where high frequencies or small current are required. They are made to carry up to several kilo ampere (kA) of current under forward bias and are bale to block the KV when reverse biased.
  • Signal diodes are also called point contact diode, switching diode, and glass passivized diode, and are smaller is size as compared to other types of diodes. The signal diode is enclosed in a glass like structure to protect the PN junction.
  • A signal diode has a red and black color band at one end of the diode to identify the cathode terminal. Small signal diodes are characterized by low power and current ratings. These signal diodes have various applications in digital communications and signal processing. Signal diodes are used in snubbing circuit, switching operations, high speed data lines, and other I/O parallel connected ports.
  • To overcome the space requirement on the digital circuit boards, the signal diodes are connected in parallel mode, creating an array known as small signal diode arrays. The signal diodes are enclosed in a single line or double line package that features from around 4 to 14 diodes and offers common anode and cathode configurations.
