semiconductor rectifier diode
A semiconductor diode intended to be used for current and voltage rectification.
NOTE 1 The term "semiconductor rectifier diode" includes the associated housing and any integral mounting and cooling attachments.
NOTE 2 The term "rectifier cell" is sometimes used as a synonym for "rectifier diode" when the diode is an element of a rectifier stack.
