This is lab 7 of 14 in the course
In this lab, students will be observing the operation and characteristics of thyristors. First, students will learn the theory of a thyristor. Then they will focus on seeing a thrysistor in simulation, followed by building one on a bread board, measuring data with an oscilloscope. Finally, students will explore a special type of thyristor called a TRIAC through simulation and answering short questions.
