Rectifying Diode Circuits – An Introduction To Analog Electronics

Posted September 12, 2013 by Chris

Now it’s time for this week’s Analog Electronics lesson! This time we will explore more about Rectifier diodes. Here’s a quick intro of what this PyroEDU lesson is all about:

In electronics, diodes serve a unique purpose in that they only allow current to flow through them in one direction, which makes them useful for blocking unwanted voltages and guiding current flow. In this lesson, we are going to use that unique property of diodes to rectify a simple AC signal into a flat DC signal.
