Brief photodiode component making a light dependent current source circuit

Table of Contents

Photodiodes that are reversed biased, will pass a certain amount of current through them, based on the amount of light falling on them, even as the load changes (as long as there is enough voltage from the supply). Some photodiodes will also act like mini solar cells under bright light.

Affiliate link ads. Noticed that Amazon has these after making the video.

  I bought some of these from a different Amazon seller that isn’t doing Prime delivery and asking for more $$$ right now. Not as cheap as the ones used in this video, but they are better. I looked at them in https://youtu.be/PVp7o5z8_9I video.
