Quality Electronic Components for Power Electronics Applications


Asymmetric GTO Thyristors

GTOs are optimized for low conduction losses. The typical on-off switching frequency is in the range of 200 - 500 hertz for most applications. GTOs are, by nature, relatively slow switches. Typical transition times from on to off state and vice versa are in a range of 10 - 30 microseconds. All GTOs require protective networks called "snubbers" for turn-on and turn-off. The turn-on snubber circuit, in essence an inductor, limits the rate of current rise. For turn-off, the GTO requires a device that limits the rate of voltage rise, in essence a capacitor.

5S Components Co.

5S Components Inc is a result of a management buyout of ABB Semiconductors Inc. by John Siefken and Kenny Stephenson. Effective December 1, 2005, 5S Components became the successor to ABB Semiconductors Inc. Kurt Hoerhager, Managing Director of ABB Switzerland Semiconductors and Roland Villiger, Director of Sales, commented that “Creating 5S guarantees focus on semiconductor sales in North America, a vital part our growth strategy.
