A current limiting diode, also known as a CLD, current regulating diode, diode connected transistor or constant current diode, regulates or limits current over a wide voltage range. Current limiting diodes consist of a JFET with the gate shorted to the source and function like a two-terminal current limiter or current source, much like voltage limiting Zener diodes.
