To better approximate a tunnel diode, you'd have
to put a resistor in parallel. I don't recommend doing
this as it only degrades the negative resistance.
Still, if one was to use a pair of these for a flop, it
might be more stable since at the higher voltages,
unlike a real TD, it completely shuts off. Without the
shunt resistors to bypass some current the circuit
