SCRs in SOT-223 have extended current range

9 March 2005 Power Electronics / Power Management

Central Semiconductor's new series of SCRs has an extended current range. The company manufactures a 2 A (CS223-2M and CS223-2N) and 4 A (CS223-4M and CS223-4N) device in the SOT-223 package. This compares to the industry standard SOT-223 SCR of 0,8 A. The M suffix signifies a peak repetitive off-state voltage of 600 V, while N suffix signifies 800 V. These devices are rated at a gate trigger current (IGT) of 200 μA maximum. SOT-223 package offers a low profile of 1,8 mm - ideal for small electronic products.
