Schottky diode Advantages
February 19, 2019 - 6:31pm

A schottky diode has very low forward voltage drop and high switching speed that a normal diode. Since it has low forward voltage drop it has less conduction loss and it is used in reverse polarity portection circuit.

@Hiro_Hamada, As far I know

@Hiro_Hamada, As far I know the main property of a diode is that it should have low forward voltage drop (Vf) and high switching speed. If a Schottky diode has both these features superior than normal common diode. Then why do we even have common diode why dont we just use Schottky diode for all applications.
