|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the TRIAC article.
This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject.
In the References section are items 1 thru 6. Item 6 (about a "snubberless" device) seems to be a dead link. I found a replacement (http://www.st.com/st-web-ui/static/active/en/resource/technical/document/datasheet/CD00263568.pdf) and would like to insert it, but in the wiki source edit area, only items 1-3 are visible; items 4-6 are nowhere to be found! How can that happen? jimswen (talk) 09:40, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Who and when invented TRIAC?
Who and when invented TRIAC? I have found relevant patent http://www.google.com/patents/US3504241 Are there any earlier patents? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:11, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
- The linked patent shows 1967 as the patent date. I seriously doubt there is anything before that. —EncMstr (talk) 03:23, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
The first illustration on the right of the opening section shows MT1 and MT2 as A1 and A2 respectively, but throughout the article the terms MT1 and MT2 are used. Also, MT1 and MT2 are more generally used. Suggest to simplify, especially for the average reader, that the illustration be change to show MT1 and MT2. Mention can then be made in the text about the alternative identities. CPES (talk) 17:40, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
Although I have done some copy editing of this article, I think it's general balance and structure are good. I found it easy to read and quickly revise how TRIACs work. Even though the illustration showing the 4 quadrants could be bigger, the illustrations are particularly well done and help greatly with the explanation. CPES (talk) 22:17, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
