This Standard recommends and describes methods of measurement of the important electrical characteristics of semiconductor diodes. For the purpose of this Standard, a semiconductor diode is defined1 as: A semiconductor device having two terminals and exhibiting a nonlinear voltage--current characteristic; in more restricted usage, a semiconductor device which has the asymmetrical voltage--current characteristic exemplified by a single p-n junction. Methods of test are described for static, small-signal and pulse parameters. Many of the terms considered herein have been set down in AI E E and IRE Standards, particularly in 60 IRE 28.SH and AI EE No. 4252.

Working Group Details
Other Activities From This Working Group
Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.
No Active Projects
Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.
No Active Standards
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
No Superseded Standards
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
No Inactive-Reserved Standards
