Diodes can be subdivided into two main classes: Rectifier diodes and fast diodes. Rectifier diodes are split into two sub-classes: Standard rectifier diodes and avalanche diodes. Rectifier diodes are generally used for conversion of AC (alternating current) to DC (direct current).
Standard rectifier diodes are optimized with respect to low conduction losses and are able to handle very large currents.
Avalanche diodes are self protected against transient over-voltages.
