Zener Diode

P: n/a
A Zener diode is a type of diode that permits current in the forward
direction like a normal diode, but also in the reverse direction if
the voltage is larger than the breakdown voltage known as "Zener knee
voltage" or "Zener voltage". The device was named after Clarence
Zener, who discovered this electrical property.
