Welcome to ITKE, pramodgv! A diode is an electronic component that has two electrodes (called the anode and the cathode). They’re used for switches, signal mixers and voltage regulators (among other things).

    @Asadkhankhattak, please see Wikipedia, and you can get your answers easily, But this is not the right way to learn something. While you are in a leaning process, it is better to read your study books and get answers from there.
