Diode Resistance

The ideal diode has zero resistance for the forward bias polarity, and infinite resistance (conducts zero current) for the reverse voltage polarity, if connected in an alternating current circuit, the semiconductor diode acts as an electrical rectifier.


A diode is a two-terminal electronic component that conducts current primarily in one direction; it has low resistance in one direction, and high resistance in the other.
