Abstract : The theoretical diode equation is studied with respect to parameter variations on the characteristic curve. Presented is the practical diode and its characteristics related to those of the theoretical diode. Also presented is the necessary parameter match for the theoretical diode that ensures a given gain or attenuation match between two amplifiers or attenuators. (Author)
