Diode Formula (Equation)
Hello Group,
What is the standard formula for determining the diode value of any given circuit? (Using Volts @amps to determine values needed) Please make this as simple as possible to determine. I'm on this site to seek expert advoce. My electronics is pretty basic. Thanks In Advance for the help! Livingwaters

Diodes are selected for a circuit by their voltage, current, power dissipation and speed ratings.

Livingwaters, diodes don't have values, like resistors do. They have part numbers, and each part has a set of specifications such as current rating, breakdown voltage, recovery time, etc.

The differential of EbersMoll is ∂I/∂V  the reciprocal of which at a given voltage will give a resistance at that voltage. Naturally the resistance changes with voltage. Dave

Hi Dave,
You are a Brit? I was in London one time. I remember Picadilly Circus, a foreign language called Cockney and cars driving on the "wrong" side of the road.
