In June 2022, STMicroelectronics launched the AECQ101 Qualified SCR Thyristors for the regulation of current and the management of Capacitor Discharges for battery chargers. These Thyristors, which range from 3.7 to 22 kW, can reduce the loss of power and are useful for electric vehicles on board chargers. It is capable of 600A of current surge, 200A of turnon reliability, and is compatible with battery management systems leading to their widespread use in electric vehicles.
ProtonElectrotex has announced the launch of new thyristor and thyristordiode modules 3-700-18,2 with increased power densities. The upgrade of the semiconductor element with minimal changes to additional design elements has led to an increase in power density. In particular, the module has been designed with a new topology which increases the operational area of the cathode by 10 %, reduces the thickness of the diffusion element and enhances its diffuse profile.
