ABB Semiconductors, Switzerland, is a world class manufacturer of large area / high voltage power semiconductors.
Over 100-years ago our journey into power electronics started in Switzerland with the production of mercury-arc rectifiers. Today, we offer one of the most diverse semiconductor offerings including thyristors, diodes, GTOs, IGCTs and IGBTs, manufactured at our Lenzburg, Switzerland and Prague, Czech Republic facilities.
With our research team we are developing the next generation power semiconductors and are set to continue pushing the boundaries of power electronics innovation.
Our advanced semiconductor technology has created almost unlimited control possibilities in HVDC transmission systems. We lie at the heart of traction converters driving high speed trains, metros and diesel-electric locomotives. And the many pumps, fans, roller tables, hoist and winches found through-out industry, rely on us.
In future we are powering the next generation of e-vehicles enabling people to enjoy greener mobility. We are Hitachi ABB Power Grids – Semiconductors. And, together with you, we can shape the future of a smarter and greener society.
