Diodes - Bridge Rectifiers
Diode bridge rectifiers are an arrangement of diodes in a bridge circuit configuration for conversion of an alternating current (AC) input to a direct current (DC) output. These components can be chassis, DIN rail, surface or through-hole mounted, and are selected by single phase or three phase diode type, forward voltage rating, average rectified current, and technology.
Diodes - Rectifiers - Arrays
Products within the diode and rectifier array family incorporate two or more discrete diodes within a single package. They are characterized in terms similar to those used for single discrete diodes, with the addition of a "Diode Configuration" attribute indicating the presence and character of any internal connections between the diodes in the device. Note that arrays with a full-bridge configuration are specifically excluded, and listed as a separate product family.
Diodes - Rectifiers - Single
Products within the single rectifier diode family are used to allow current flow in one direction only, and implement exactly one instance of this function per device package. Diodes used for other purposes (including zener and variable capacitance diodes) are listed separately in product families of their own, as are products incorporating multiple diodes per device package.
Transistors - Bipolar (BJT) - Arrays
Bipolar transistor arrays incorporate two or more discrete transistors in a shared package, either as electrically separate entities or with interconnections of some form between them being made inside the device package. Arrays in which the devices contained have closely matched or complementary characteristics, the co-packaged character minimizes temperature differences between devices during operation.
Transistors - Bipolar (BJT) - Single
Discrete Bipolar Junction Transistors (BJTs) are commonly used to construct analog signal amplification functions in audio, radio, and other applications. One of the first semiconductor devices to be mass produced, their characteristics are less favorable than those of other device types for applications involving high frequency switching and operation with high currents or voltages, but they remain a technology of choice for applications requiring analog signal reproduction with minimal added noise and distortion.
Transistors - FETs, MOSFETs - Arrays
Field-effect transistors (FET) are electronic devices which use an electric field to control the flow of current. Application of a voltage to the gate terminal alters the conductivity between the drain and source terminals. FETs are also known as unipolar transistors since they involve single-carrier-type operation. That is, FETs use electrons or holes as charge carriers in their operation, but not both. Field effect transistors generally display very high input impedance at low frequencies.
Transistors - FETs, MOSFETs - Single
Discrete Field Effect Transistors (FETs) are widely used in power conversion, motor control, solid-state lighting, and other applications where their characteristic ability to be switched on & off at high frequencies while carrying substantial amounts of current is advantageous. They are used almost universally for applications requiring voltage ratings of a few hundred volts or less, above which other device types such as IGBTs become more competitive.
Transistors - JFETs
Junction gate field-effect transistors (JFET) are devices used as electronically-controlled switches, amplifiers, or voltage-controlled resistors. A potential difference of the proper polarity applied between the gate and source terminals increases resistance to current flow, which means less current would flow in the channel between the source and drain terminals. JFETs do not need a biasing current due to a charge flowing through a semiconducting channel between source and drain terminals.
