The core technology found in all Solidtron Advanced Thyristor Products originated in the labs of General Electric in 1988 and later evolved by Silicon Power into the ultimate solid-state pulsed-power switch and branded Solidtron for its tube-like lightning fast performance.
Acquired by Excelitas Technologies in 2020, Solidtron is recognized as the world’s premier smart-weapons solid-state initiator firing switch. Beyond this application, its incredibly fast and predictable turn-on performance as well as low conduction loss make Solidtron the right choice for numerous other pulsed-power applications which include: Capacitor Discharge Ignition (CDI), electromagnetic pulse forming, magnetic pulse welding, magnetic metal compaction and many more pulsed-power applications which demand efficiency, reliability and longevity.
Solidtron products are a superior solid-state replacement for many spark-gaps, thyratrons, ignitrons and other legacy closing-switch technologies.
