When breakdown occurs, the diode enters a region of negative dynamic resistanceleading to a decrease in the voltage drop across the dizc and, usually, a sharp increase in current through the diode.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
For other uses, see DIAC disambiguation. This page was last edited on 1 Juneat Their behavior is similar to that of a neon lampbut it can be more precisely viac and takes place at a lower voltage. This behavior is bidirectional, meaning typically the same for both directions of current.
These are designed to tolerate large surge currents for the suppression of overvoltage transients. 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.
DIACs are also called “symmetrical trigger diodes” due to the symmetry of their characteristic curve. The er9000 of the SIDAC is functionally similar to that of a spark gapbut is unable to reach its higher temperature ratings. In many applications this function is now served by metal oxide varistors MOVsparticularly for trapping voltage transients on the power mains.
In general, SIDACs have higher breakover voltages and current handling capacities than DIACs, so they can be directly used for switching and not just for triggering of another switching device. Retrieved from ” https: The SIDAC remains nonconducting until the applied voltage meets or exceeds its rated breakover voltage. The diode remains in conduction until the current through it drops below a value characteristic for the device, called the holding currentI H.
Also referred to diacc a SYDAC E9r00 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.

However, where part-counts are to be kept low, simple relaxation oscillators are needed, and when the voltages are too low for practical operation of a spark gap, the SIDAC is an indispensable component.
