SCR Applications

What is SCR? The term SCR stands for silicon-controlled rectifier which is one of the most important members of the thyristor family. A silicon-controlled rectifier or semiconductor-controlled rectifier is a four-layer solid-state current-controlling device. SCR Symbol The silicon-controlled rectifier is a one-way current control device. Like a simple p-n junction diode, it allows current to flow in one direction only and prevents … Read more
