R&D 100

Alex Huang (left) and Bin Zhang display their Emitter Turn-Off (ETO) Thyristor, which has been named one of the top inventions of 2003 by R&D Magazine. The ETO enables high-frequency and high-power systems, such as large motors and electric utility systems to use power electronics technology to improve equipment reliability and efficiency at a low cost.
