A Si diode (p-junction) is connected to a resistor R and a biasing battery of variable voltage VB. Assume that diode requires a maximum current of 1 mA to be above the knee point (0.7 V) of its V-i characteristic curve. Also assume that the voltage V across the diode is independent of current above the knee point. If VB = 5 V, what should be the maximum value of R so that the voltage V is above the knee-point voltage?
