Proper way to demonstrate reverse recovery time of a diode using SPICE simulation

After encountering a nice example from an answer of this question, I wanted to simulate the same circuit in LTspice to compare the reverse recovery times of two diodes 1N4148 and 1N4007 by a 5V ...

Why did they use ultrafast diodes in a 50 or 60 Hz bridge?

This is again from an HP power supply (PSU). The incoming 230 V is rectified into 340 VDC and is fed to a switched-mode supply. The odd thing here is that the manual for that unit, HP6023A, ...

PIC SMBus timeout and recovery from that timeout

I am trying to communicate with 3 batteries (same kind of batteries) with SMBus and I use PIC18F26K83. There is a mux in order to solve address conflict of the same 3 batteries. My problem is that ...

What is a typical reverse recovery time for a zener diode, or is reverse recovery time not applicable to zener diodes?

A little background.. I'm trying to understand how zener diodes respond to high voltage transients. I stumbled across discussions of reverse recovery time and I'm curious how it applies specifically ...

EPROM memory - the theoretical possibility of recovering data from memory after erasing the exposure with ultraviolet light?

I have a small question. We have a EPROM memory. Is there a theoretical possibility of recovering data from memory after deleting with ultraviolet light? Is this theoretically possible? Or maybe it ...
