D is for Diode! Protector of circuits and the D in LEDs, learn how diodes work in this episode of Circuit Playground, featuring engineer Amanda “W0z” Wozniak and robot puppet ADABOT. More from Autodesk:
The diode is well known for its ability to control the flow of electrical current in a circuit. Unlike passive components that sit idly by resisting or storing, diodes actively have their hands deep in the ebb and flow of current as it courses throughout our devices.
