    When the diode fails, it become open circuit or short circuit.
    Now I have a question, why the diode get short or open circuit when it fails.
    Is there any kind of diode that the probability of becoming open circuit be more than the probability of becoming short circuit?
    Is there this kind of diode?
    please help me.
