diode switch

diode switch

[′dī‚ōd ‚swich]
(electronics)
Diode which is made to act as a switch by the successive application of positive and negative biasing voltages to the anode (relative to the cathode), thereby allowing or preventing, respectively, the passage of other applied waveforms within certain limits of voltage.
