Corporate Overview

Silicon Power Corporation designs, fabricates and markets a wide range of power semiconductor devices for a wide variety of pulse power and power applications. General Electric company operated the facility until 1994, when the present ownership transitioned from GE to Silicon Power Corporation. Today, the company produces thyristors up to 9kV and silicon diameters in 100mm and 125mm sizes. In 2003 the company introduced the Solidtron miniature thyristor product line based on the MOS controlled thyristor and Super GTO technology for low duty high voltage pulse discharge applications.

"Our components are proven and practical and have broad application in a world increasingly dependent upon the microchip," says Dr. Harshad Mehta, President and Founder. The company is vertically integrated on the large area semiconductor component line so that it can easily custom tailor solutions to meet individual customer specifications.

The 77mm and 100mm devices are used by rail transportation companies such as GE Transportation and MARTA for use in traction applications. The new Solidtron products are used by the biggest fuze manufactures in military weapon systems like the Patriot PAC-3 missile and GMLRS missiles. Silicon Power manufactures components that often exceed specifications and expectations and subsequently, the company has earned a reputation for being market driven, and for anticipating the changing needs of customers.
