Discrete semiconductor devices are individual electronic components that perform specific functions within electronic circuits. Unlike integrated circuits (ICs) that integrate multiple components onto a single chip, discrete semiconductors are standalone components that can be individually selected and used based on the specific application requirements. Here are some commonly used discrete semiconductor devices:
Thyristor Surge Suppressors,etc.
Discrete semiconductor devices are available in various package types, including through-hole and surface-mount packages, to suit different assembly methods and requirements.
