What types of power semiconductor components can be divided into

Power semiconductor devices are also called power electronics or power devices. It is a special switch with power management capabilities, including frequency conversion, variable voltage, variable current and power management, widely used in computer, communication, consumer electronics, new energy, automobile, industrial manufacturing and other fields.

​Then do you know what types of power semiconductor devices can be divided into? Let's take a look at the 1GP7001.

General power semiconductor devices in the industry are divided into the following three categories:

Diode: The switching state is controlled by the main circuit (power circuit) itself, so it is also called passive switch and uncontrollable switch.

SCR: It can be turned on by a low power control signal, but can only be turned off by the main circuit (the power circuit) itself, not by the control signal. For this reason, it is also called a semi-controllable switch.

Controllable switch: semiconductor controllable switch including GTO, IGCT, GTR, IGBT, VMOS and so on.

Then the above is the relevant introduction of what types of power semiconductor components can be divided into. I hope it will be helpful to you. If you need electronic components, please contact us.
