Zener diode is a specific kind of diode which primarily allows current to flow from its anode to the cathode; however, it also helps the current to flow in the reverse direction. Highly doped p-n junction is a prime feature of Zener diodes. The sharpness and voltage of the knee is better defined of a Zener diode than any conventional or normal diode. Moreover, traditional diodes are not particularly designed to work in the breakdown region. However, Zener diodes are primarily designed in such a way that they can perfectly operate in the breakdown region. A Zener diode is used for regulating voltage in practical circuit applications. The key function of Zener diodes is to regulate voltage in different equipment. In terms of type, the Zener diodes market can be segmented into surface mount Zener diode and through-hole Zener diode. In terms of end-use industry, the market for Zener diodes can be segmented into consumer electronics, information technology, industrial, telecommunication, and automotive.
