Authors: Timothy E. Griffin
Date/Pages: August 2006; 16 pages
Abstract: A Super Gate Turn-Off Thyristor (SGTO) of silicon is intended for pulse applications. Its operation is discussed, and the device was turned off at low continuous current. From a review of GTO turn-off gate drivers, we discuss gate drivers for the modest continuous currents of the SGTO.
