Differentiate, distinguish, compare and explain what is the main difference between power and signal Diode. Comparison and Differences.
Difference between Power and Signal Diode
1. Power diode is constructed with n-layer, called drift region between the p+ layer and n+ layer. In Signal diode, the drift region is not present.
2. The voltage, current, and power ratings are higher in the power diode while it is lower in the signal.
3. Power diodes operate at high speeds. Signal diode operates at higher switching speed.
