Abstract: A MERGED DEVICE based upon double-diffused MOS (DhlOS) technology and combining thc MOS and thyristor families has been developed, resulting in an insulated gate triac structure applicable to areas now served by current-controlled PNPN switches. The devicc -MOS-controlled Triac (TRIMOS) -may be integrated with other MOS components, for use in crosspoint switching, output stages and power control.Although it is a single regenerative device, TRIMOS can be viewed, as can 12L, as several merged conventional compo…
