Zener diodes are used to provide an accurate reference voltage. They "break down" at a specified voltage in "reverse bias".

Zener Diode in the Lushprojects Simulator    Slide the resistance slider to simulate different load currents. The 4 V Zener level does not change.

Zener Diode Properties

All diodes allow current to pass in one direction only. In normal use, diodes never suffer a reverse breakdown which would destroy the diode.

Zener Diodes are special because they can break down without being damaged. They do this at a specific voltage (the Zener voltage) which is accurately determined by the manufacturing process. It is possible to purchase Zener diodes with a range of breakdown voltages between about 3.3 up to 200 volts.
