STMicroelectronics’ 800V 8H triacs operate at full rated current up to the maximum junction temperature of 150°C, allowing heatsinks in drives for AC loads to smaller, claims the company. The family spans 8A to 30A, and the 800V peak off-state voltage allows mains applications including operating from up to 400V three phase. They can withstand …
