PN-Diode Circuit

Application ID: 14623

This model extracts spice parameters for a silicon p-n junction diode. The spice parameters are used to create a lumped-element equivalent circuit model of a half-wave rectifier that is compared to a full device level simulation. In this example, a device model is made by connecting a 2D meshed p-n junction diode to a circuit containing a sinusoidal source, a resistor and a ground to form a basic half-wave rectifier circuit. In order to validate the simulation results, the output of the device simulation is compared with the circuit response obtained using a large signal diode model.
