When devices are being designed to operate at low voltage, it’s often necessary to take into account the voltage drop across any diodes in the circuit. A challenging part of the design process is that the voltage drop across a diode depends on current flowing through it, which in its turn depends on the voltages in the circuit, including the voltage drop across this diode. It then becomes necessary to find the diode's voltage drop in a few iterations, and that can be cumbersome...<
