Control accurate incremental voltage steps with a rotary encoder

by Anthony Smith @ edn.com: Experimenting with an HF oscillator, I needed to control the varactor diode voltage in precise increments over a 2V-10V range. A buffered potentiometer was the obvious choice, and connecting two pots in series to give coarse/fine control (or using a...

Basic Types of Diodes

In this article we will discuss about the various types of diodes, their working principle and their common uses. We will cover many common diode types, such as P-N junction diode, Zener diode, Schottky diode, LED and laser diodes, photo diode, varactor diode, avalanche diode, PIN diode...
