Silicon Controlled Rectifiers (SCRs) from American Microsemiconductor

Servicing the Semiconductor industry since 1970.

With over 17,000,000 electronic components sitting on our warehouse shelves we can almost guarantee that we've got the right part for the job! The Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR) is simply a conventional rectifier controlled by a gate signal.

It's not recomended, but the SCR can also be switched on accidently by exceeding the anode to cathode breakover voltage or by a large dv/dt. 

 SCR applications are in power switching, phase control, chopper, and inverter circuits.

Specifications of SCR

  • Major considerations for ordering an SCR are:
  • Peak reverse breakdown voltage
  • Maximum forward current
  • Gate trigger voltage and current
  • Minimum holding current, Ih
  • Power dissipation
  • Maximum dv/dt
