The electronics industry is in constant evolution, and it is not uncommon to see manufacturers discontinuing the production of older components in favor of new technologies. Others face supply or planning difficulties and announce significant delays. This can pose a major challenge for companies that rely on these components for their existing systems and applications. This is especially true for stud diodes (also known as bolt diodes or screw diodes) and stud thyristors (also known as screw thyristors). Powerex has solutions to help its customers address these challenges.
