Zener diode calculator | converters and calculators
This page of converters and calculators section covers zener diode calculator. This zener diode calculator calculates series resistance as output. It takes source voltage (min,max), zener diode voltage and load current (in mA) as input.
Example of zener diode calculator:
INPUTS : Vsmin = 20 V, Vsmax = 24 V, Vz = 12 V, IL (current through series resistor) = 500 mA
OUTPUTS: Zener series resistance = 16 Ohm.
