Semiconductors - Power Modules, Transistors, Diodes, SCRs, Triac...

Semiconductor devices are discrete, powerful electronic components that use the properties of semiconductors to provide utility.

Power modules contain power semiconductor devices like IGBTs and MOSFETs, and help provide fast switching and significant signal amplification.

Diodes and their variations perform several different functions. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are highly efficient semiconductor light sources that offer very high brightness, multiple wavelengths and colors, and high switching rates. Bridge rectifiers arrange several diodes in a bridge circuit and convert alternating current into direct current.

The most common semiconductor device is the transistor, which are used to amplify or switch signals and power. Transistors are fundamental in modern electronics, and deliver unparalleled power, speed, logic and efficiency to electronic components in every application.
