The power products they manufacture include IGBTs, various types of thyristor and GTOs.

Research partnerships[edit]

Along with several other industry partners, Dynex is a member of the National Microelectronics Institute of the University of Surrey[1] Dynex also supports research in power conversion electronics for hybrid vehicles with two other British universities, Durham University and the University of Warwick[2]


The Dynex power semiconductor business was originally established in Lincoln over 50 years ago when it was known as AEI Semiconductors Ltd. At that time, the business introduced some of the first silicon-based power semiconductor components in the world. Since then it acquired the power semiconductor interests, technologies and products from some major names such as GEC, SGS-Thomson, Alstom and Marconi Electronic Devices (MEDL).

In 2008, 75% of shares of Dynex Power has acquired by Chinese manufacturer Zhuzhou CSR Times Electric Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of CSR Corporation Limited.[3]
