What are the requirements when selecting a diode for a Baker clamp circuit?
How does the reverse leakage current of the diode affect the circuit? Can a diode with relatively high reverse leakage current (e.g. in mA range) turn the transistor on spontaneously?
In case of single Schottky Baker clamp, is there a scenario where lower Vf is not desirable, or do we always want the diode Vf to be as low as possible?
