Download: Practical Applications of Current Limiting Diodes.

Taken from the first page: The current limiting diode (CLD) or current regulating diode (CRD) has been available since the early 1960’s. Unfortunately, despite its simplicity and distinct advantages over conventional transistorized applications, it has seen only limited use. One reason may be designers’ lack of familiarity with

Taken from Introduction: The current limiting diode (CLD) or current regulating diode (CRD), despite its simplicity and distinct advantage over a conventional transistorized current source, has limited use. One reason is that presently available CLD’s can provide current regulation only up to 15mA maximum, and in terms of power, only 1
