Tunnel diode application

Applications of tunnel diode:
  • Tunnel diode can be used as a switch, oscillator, and amplifier
  • It is used as an ultra high-speed switch
  • It shows a fast response
  • It is used as an ultra 
  • It is used as a high-frequency component
  • Tunnel diode acts as a logic memory storage device
  • It can be used as FM receiver since it is a low current device it is not used more
  • It can be used in modern military equipment
  • It can be used as a microwave oscillator at a frequency of about 10 GHz
  • It is used in nuclear magnetic resource machine
  • It can be used in satellite communication equipment
Practical application of tunnel diode:
  • The tunnel diode is mostly used as a relaxation oscillator circuit
  • It can be used microwave oscillator, which has the frequency above than 10 GHz
  • It can be used as an amplifier
  • It is used as a whenever high switching is needed mostly in control system because it has a switching time of the nanoseconds or picoseconds
  • It is used in satellite communication types of equipment
  • It is used as a memory storage device
  • It is used in nuclear magnetic resource machine
  • It is also used in the military type of equipment like sonars and radars
  • It has a small inductance, capacitance, and also it has negative resistance for that reason it is used in microwave oscillator and relaxation oscillator
