Yes, Zener diodes can work both on forward and reverse biasing. The primary difference between a zener diode and the ordinary junction diode is it is designed specifically to operate with a reverse bias voltage that is high enough to cause the the device to breakdown and conduct a high reverse current. Hope this answers your question and provides you with some help. If you need further assistance please let me know.

If you do not mind, would you please rate my help. I would very much appreciate it. Thanks

A conventional solid-state diode will not allow significant current if it is reverse-biased below its reverse breakdown voltage. When the reverse bias breakdown voltage is exceeded, a conventional diode is subject to high current due to avalanche breakdown. Unless this current is limited by external circuitry, the diode will be permanently damaged.

In case of large forward bias (current in the direction of the arrow), the diode exhibits a voltage drop due to its junction built-in voltage and internal resistance. The amount of the voltage drop depends on the semiconductor material and the doping concentrations.

Zener diodes are widely used to regulate the voltage across a circuit. When connected in parallel with a variable voltage source so that it is reverse biased, a Zener diode conducts when the voltage reaches the diode's reverse breakdown voltage. From that point it keeps the voltage at that value.

i hope it helps!!!

Barrier Diode Failure


You seem to know what you're doing, but make sure the diode only works one way. If it doesn't work at all, then it will need to be replaced, if it works both ways, it could have damaged other components.

This laptop is quite old and personally I wouldn't have bothered with it, since as you know, these laptops are terrible for these sorts of problems!

Would like a circuit diagram for dell inspiron 1000 power circuit


There is a reverse polarity diode that prob popped. It doesn't allow the power to even reach the battery anymore. It'll prob charge in another laptop that takes that battery. The diode is on the mother board.

Bios password removed


hi to remove the password off the bias, u need to take the bias battery out of the motherboard or change the bias jumpers depending on the motherboard inside of the laptop.

Most motherboard manuals will show you how to do this. The bias battary normally works for all motherboards. You bias setting will reset so it should work.

Diodes are going bad or are fixing to blow out. Only thing that you can do is to take it in to a repair shop to replace the diodes.

Diode broke off board while installing ram. will not boot..size of know the diode is (-) that dash is the size


well (-) is not the size it notifies the negative end of diode and the model number of diode will be very tiny on it, if that is known u can replace it.

Remove Battery. Find out where CMOS batter is (usually near Ram Memory removable panel. Disconnect CMOS and replace in a few hours, Replace computer battery and start in BIAS. Look in Security Section of Bias and uncheck Security Code. If no Option just restart Computer an d reset code if you want. Codes are saved in CMOS system.

Blown diode


No. A diode holds a charge in one direction only the wire does nothing but burn open on excess current. Obtain the correct Diode from radio shack and replace. The ereal question is why the diode is blown..
