Power Semiconductors

What is a Power Semiconductor?

Power semiconductors are components used to convert energy from one form to another at various stages between the points of energy generation and energy consumption. A power semiconductor component can take the form of a discrete transistor, thyristor, or diode; or if a higher level of current or integration is required, the component can take the form of a multi-chip module, which contains more than one of these devices in a desired configuration or topology.

At Littelfuse, we understand that a wide variety of energy conversion requirements calls for a wide variety of power semiconductors. Our comprehensive portfolio includes thyristors, rectifiers and fast recovery diodes, IGBTs, and wide band gap devices – all in a variety of discrete and multi-chip module formats, and all designed to help you flexibly manage your power system with elegance and efficiency.
