-The zener diode ( 1N4735 ) supplied in the Analog Parts Kit is a 6.1 volt diode. 6.1 volts is much too high a reverse breakdown voltage to build this circuit using the fixed +/- 5 volt power supplies of the Analog Discovery ​hardware. The forward voltage of an LED is in the range of 1.6 to 2.0 volts depending on the color of the diode. While not a proper reference diode, we can build the circuit for instructional purposes using the LEDs from the Analog Parts Kit. +The zener diode ( 1N4735 ) supplied in the ADALP2000 ​Analog Parts Kit is a 6.1 volt diode. 6.1 volts is much too high a reverse breakdown voltage to build this circuit using the fixed +/- 5 volt power supplies of the ADALM2000 ​hardware.

 Build both of the versions of the circuits in figure 1(a) and 1(b) as shown in figure 2 on your solder-less breadboard. Use two LEDs preferably of the same color. Green LEDs will have a higher forward voltage drop than red or yellow. We want the diode current, I<​sub>​D</​sub>,​ to be about 1 mA and the as close to this same value in both versions of the circuit. In the case (b) I<​sub>​D</​sub> ​ will be +5/​R<​sub>​4</​sub>​ so a 4.7 KΩ resistor would give about 1 mA. In case (a) I<​sub>​D</​sub>​ will be (+5-V<​sub>​D</​sub>​)/​R<​sub>​3</​sub>​. If we use 2 V as an estimate for V<​sub>​D</​sub>,​ then R<​sub>​3</​sub>​ would be around 3 KΩ. You can get 3 KΩ by connecting two 1.5 KΩ resistors from the Parts Kit in series. Also for case (a) we need to pick values for R<​sub>​1</​sub>​ and R<​sub>​2</​sub>​. We want the current in R<​sub>​1</​sub>​ to be much smaller than the current in R<​sub>​3</​sub>​. So setting ​ R<​sub>​1</​sub>​ and R<​sub>​2</​sub>​ to a much higher value such as 20 KΩ should satisfy that condition. Build both of the versions of the circuits in figure 1(a) and 1(b) as shown in figure 2 on your solder-less breadboard.
