Standard thyristors

Standard thyristors are designed for low-speed, low-power applications. They can cut or switch the current in a circuit, but they are not designed to handle high current or voltage levels. They are often used in low-power control and power circuits.

    • Maximum voltage 6500V
    • Maximum average current 5000A
    • Silicon diameter from 16mm to 100mm

Fast thyristors

Fast thyristors are designed for high-speed, high-power applications. They are capable of rapidly cutting or switching current in a circuit, even at high current and voltage levels. They are often used in high-power circuits, such as power converters and voltage regulators.

    • Maximum voltage 2400V
    • Maximum average current 2100A
    • Silicon diameter from 16mm to 77mm

What is a thyristor?

A power thyristor is a bi-stable, three-terminal device with alternating P and N layers.
