The diode remains in conduction until the current through it drops below a value characteristic for the device, called the holding fiacI H. Also referred to as a SYDAC Silicon 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. This page was last edited on 1 Juneat Views Read Edit View history. In general, SIDACs have higher breakover voltages and current handling er900 than DIACs, so they can be directly used for switching and not just for triggering of another switching device.
However, where part-counts are to be kept low, simple relaxation oscillators wr900 needed, and when the voltages are too low for practical operation of a spark gap, the SIDAC is an indispensable component. These are designed to tolerate large surge currents for the suppression of overvoltage transients.

The operation of the SIDAC is functionally similar to that of a spark gapbut is unable to reach its higher temperature ratings. 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.
In many applications this function is now served by metal oxide varistors MOVsparticularly for trapping voltage transients on the power mains. DIACs are also called “symmetrical trigger diodes” due to the symmetry of their characteristic curve.
For other uses, see DIAC disambiguation. Somewhat uncommon in most electronicsthe SIDAC is relegated to the status of a special purpose device. The term is an acronym of “diode idac alternating current”.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Capacitor types Ceramic resonator Crystal oscillator Inductor Parametron Relay reed relay mercury switch. This behavior is bidirectional, meaning typically the same for both directions fr900 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.
In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Their behavior is similar to that of a neon lampbut it can be more precisely controlled and takes place at a lower voltage. Potentiometer digital Variable capacitor Varicap.
Diodes Solid state switches. Retrieved from ” https: The SIDAC remains nonconducting until the applied voltage meets or exceeds its rated breakover voltage. Below this value, the diode switches back to its high-resistance, non-conducting state.
