Discrete semiconductors are singular devices that are constructed to perform a function similar to that of two different devices in a specific configuration. Bipolar transistors, rectifiers, insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs), metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) and thyristors are some common product types. They are utilized to perform minor electronic functions, including power conversion and voltage regulation in computers, smartphones, hybrid cars, LED lighting, tablets and portable medical electronics. Discrete semiconductors are reliable, portable, and easily replaceable and offer increased operating speed and lower power consumption. As a result, they find extensive applications across the automotive, consumer electronics, and telecommunications industries.
