The diode remains in conduction until the current through it drops below a value characteristic for the device, called the holding currentI H.
For other uses, see DIAC disambiguation.
The operation of the SIDAC is functionally similar to that of a spark gapbut is unable to reach its higher temperature ratings. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.
This page was last edited on 1 Juneat Once entering this conductive state going through the negative dynamic resistance region, the SIDAC continues to conduct, regardless of voltage, until the applied current falls below its rated holding current.
When breakdown occurs, the diode enters a region of negative dynamic resistanceleading to a decrease in the voltage drop across the diode and, usually, a sharp increase in current through the diode. Their behavior is similar to that of a neon lampbut it can be more precisely controlled and takes place at a lower voltage.
However, where part-counts are to be kept low, simple relaxation oscillators are needed, dizc when the voltages are too low for practical operation of a spark gap, the SIDAC is an indispensable component.
Potentiometer digital Variable capacitor Varicap. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Capacitor types Ceramic resonator Crystal oscillator Inductor Parametron Relay reed relay mercury switch. In general, SIDACs have higher breakover voltages and current handling capacities than DIACs, so they can be directly used for switching and not just for triggering of another switching device. Also referred to as a SYDAC Idac thYristor for Alternating Currentbi-directional thyristor breakover diodeor more simply a bi-directional thyristor diode, it is technically specified as a bilateral voltage triggered switch.
The SIDAC remains nonconducting until the applied voltage meets or exceeds its rated ed900 voltage. These are designed to tolerate large surge currents for the suppression of overvoltage transients. Retrieved from ” https: This behavior is bidirectional, meaning typically the same for both directions of current. DIACs are also called “symmetrical trigger diodes” due to the symmetry of their characteristic curve.
Somewhat uncommon in most electronicsthe SIDAC is relegated to the status of a special purpose device.
In many applications this function is now served by metal oxide varistors MOVsparticularly for trapping voltage transients on the power mains. Diodes Solid state switches.
The term is an acronym of “diode for alternating current”.
