Schottky Diodes
Feb 01, 2018

Schottky diodes are named after their inventor, Schottky, short for Schottky Barrier Diode (SBD). SBD does not make use of p-type semiconductor and n-type semiconductor contact PN junction principle of production, but the use of metal and semiconductor contact formed by the metal - semiconductor junction principle of making. Therefore, SBD is also known as a metal-semiconductor (contact) diode or surface-barrier diode, which is a hot-carrier diode.
