Thyristor, also called silicon controlled rectifier or SCR, is constructed just like a transistor. The origin of this product is rooted in 1950's. Shockley discovered this product and after that many discoveries are made on its design by Ebers, Moll and many. It was in 60's, this device became popular for power switching. In present time, this electronic device is used in power control and other high power electronics. Based on the application, this product is ideal for switching large levels of power/ high voltages. It has the ability to withstand reverse voltages. It can also be used in low power electronics.
