AMS supplies a diac in surface mount package

Product Announcement from American Microsemiconductor, Inc.

AMS supplies a diac in surface mount package-Image

American Microsemiconductor Inc.(AMS) supplies surface mount diacs in a mini melf package. The diac is a bidirectional trigger diode that is designed specifically to trigger a triac or SCR. Basically the diac does not conduct (except for a small leakage current) until its breakover voltage is reached. At that point the diac goes into avalanche conduction, also at that point the device exhibits a negative resistance characteristic, and the voltage drop across the diac snaps back from its Breakover Voltage. The snap back voltage is typically 5 Volts, creating a breakover current sufficient to trigger a triac or SCR.

American Microsemiconductor Inc. also supplies thru hole diacs in the axial glass package with breakover voltages from 18 Volts to 48 Volts.
