A new dual-base triggered SCR is presented. By adjusting the device sizings in the trigger circuit, the designer sets the trigger voltage to an application-appropriate value. The turn-on time is comparable to that of DTSCRs fabricated in the same technology node, but the leakage is orders of magnitude lower.
