Automotive Load Switching Using Gate Controlled, Silicon Controlled Rectifiers 760180

ABSTRACT

A solid-state device, the gate-controlled, silicon controlled rectifier, or GTO SCR, that can be turned on and off by the application of a signal to its gate can be used in automotive electrical systems as a remote power switch to reduce the complexity and size of the wiring presently required. Device characteristics and ratings are discussed, and sample circuits are described.
