Diode measurements

The properties of a diodes can be found in the specific manufacturer datasheet. But two semiconductors of the same type can differ significant. Or one holds a diode of unknown origin. If one wants to know the exact properties, than a series of measurements has to be carried out to reveal the parameters of this specific diode. This article discuss a number of measurements that measure the key DC properties.
