Zener Diode


Zener Diodes

This is lab 3 of 14 in the course
In this lab, students will focus on Zener diodes, including their theory of operation, applications, and uses. They will first observe the function of a zener diode when used as a voltage regulator in circuit simulation. Then they will implement and test the circuits using the NI ELVIS III breadboard and IV Analyzer by appling voltage to a load through a zener diode. Students will lastly be asked to explain the concept and applications of Zener diodes in short answer questions.
