IXYS Introduces New High Performance DT-Triac™ Technology Platform

IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ: IXYS), a leader in power semiconductors and integrated circuit technologies for energy efficient products used in power conversion and motor control applications, announces today a new “Dual Thyristor –Triac” technology platform (DT-Triac™).

IXYS continued its tradition of innovative bipolar power device technology. Triacs are known as best in class for AC power control, providing better power density in numerous power system applications. However, traditional triacs have been limited to lower currents and lower voltages, and with low levels of dv/dt and di/dt ratings.

“In the quest for better AC power control and better efficiency in many higher power applications, IXYS scientists developed the robust DT-Triac™ technology which is fully produced in our own wafer fabrication facility,” commented Dr. Nathan Zommer, Founder of IXYS Corporation.

The DT-Triac™ has the same functionality as the standard triac but with higher di/dt and dv/dt ratings. This contributes to more robust devices together with the long-term stability of blocking voltage and higher current capability.

The IXYS DT-Triac™ is designed for line frequency applications and three quadrant operations, namely quadrants I to III. Target applications are solid state relays, soft start AC motor control, DC motor control, HVAC systems, UPS, AC power control, input power control for SMPSs, lighting and heater controls.

The CLA60MT1200NHB is a TO-247 AC-controller product with 1200 Volt, 60 Amps using the new DT-Triac™ technology. Additionally, an isolated version is introduced in an ISO247™ housing, the CLA60MT1200NHR. For surface mounted applications, the TO-268 version CLA60MT1200NTZ is available.

Looking further into the future, IXYS plans to increase the voltage range of the technology to 1600 Volt and also expand the current rating range of these devices. IXYS will also develop these devices to specific customer needs. Please contact the IXYS sales and marketing teams.


The CLA60MT1200NHB is available in production quantities. For additional information, please contact your local sales representative at: or visit for the datasheet.
