As such, the diode can be viewed as an electronic version of a check valve. This unidirectional behavior is called rectification , and is used to convert alternating current ac to direct current dc. Forms of rectifiers , diodes can be used for such tasks as extracting modulation from radio signals in radio receivers. However, diodes can have more complicated behavior than this simple on—off action, because of their nonlinear current-voltage characteristics. The voltage drop across a forward-biased diode varies only a little with the current, and is a function of temperature; this effect can be used as a temperature sensor or as a voltage reference.
