Characteristic curves provide professionals with information on the behaviour of electrical components. Each type of component has its own typical characteristic curve. The students are to learn this in connection with this experiment, in which they themselves record and evaluate the characteristic curve of a silicon diode.


  • No additional cable connections between the building blocks needed - clear arragned and quick setup
  • Contact saftey due to puzzle blocks system
  • Corrosion-free gold plated contacts
  • Doubled earning sucess: Electric circuit diagram on top, real components can be seen unterside


Which properties of a diode can be derived from its characteristic curve?

Determine the dependence of the intensity of the current that flows through a diode from the voltage drop across the diode.
