current regulative diode (CRD)

As can be seen from the name current limiting diodes (CRD), these are special diodes that limit the current at a certain current intensity. Their characteristic curve shows a straight course from a certain point. The current is constant from a certain voltage

and then does not increase any further even if the voltage continues to rise.

Characteristics of current limiting diodes (CRD)

Current limiting diodes are used, among other things, in constant current sources and ensure a constant current over a wide voltage range.
