Basics of Semiconductor Devices
Why use modules? Why not just discrete thyristors and diodes? What are the advantages of semi conductor fuses? Why use them? Here are some articles that shed light on these questions, and more. Read on!
Simply put, transistors amplify current. Transistors have replaced vacuum tubes and valves almost everywhere, and are nowadays manufactured as handy modules.
Thyristor and Transistor Modules
The trend now is providing transistor modules and thyristor modules. Modules provide many advantages over single transistors and thyristors.
All About Thyristors
A thyristor is one of the several controllable semi conductor devices. A thyristor is a four-layer semiconductor device, consisting of alternating P type and N type materials (PNPN).
In todays industry avoiding down-time can be the same as creating income. Not using fuses for semiconductor protection would have catastrophic consequences.
The Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) is a minority-carrier device with high input impedance and large bipolar current-carrying capability.
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Protection
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the release of static electricity when two objects come into contact.
As the name implies, semiconductors are materials that are neither completely insulators nor completely conductors
What makes Bussmann fuses special? They have some patented fuse technology that protects the electronic circuits in a more effective way.
