    Dear All Members,

    I am struggling with diode selection for any application.
    I am confused about which diode should be selected where ?
    What specification should be considered ?

    Is there any selection criteria. Please suggest me some links or PDF.

    Thank You

    This is a very broad topic, like the one in your other post - http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?t=52891

    The best way to be able to make the proper component selection is to spend some years studying electronics in a formal setting. The knowledge gained from your studies will allow you to make such selections in confidence that you know the issues involved.
