    Hello, we encountered a strange question today.
    It showed a voltage shunt regulator circuit, like you would use a zener in.
    However instead of a zener there was a schottky symbol and it had a reverse breakdown voltage of 5.6V.

    ..................sorry, I just answered my own question. Is was getting mixed up with the schottky symbol and the double ended version of the zener symbol.
