America Semiconductor Diacs are widely used in consumer appliance applications - mainly used in dimmer applications as well as in starter circuits for fluorescent lamps.
We offer a three-layer Diac (or Diode for Alternating Current) structure that has a lower breakover voltage. Like our Triacs, Diacs can conduct current in either direction, but not until breakdown voltage has been exceeded. This America Semiconductor product is commonly used alongside the Triac to assist even triggering when used as a switch. Diacs are mainly used in dimmer applications as well as in starter circuits for fluorescent lamps.
Please contact us regarding any questions you may have regarding the America Semiconductor Diacs or any of our other industry leading products.
