Intro to SCRs

In this Lab you will learn how a SCR (Silicone Controlled Rectifier) works and build a simple circuit to show that a SCR conducts electric current only after given a positive pulse on its Gate pin. It will continue conducting electric current until the power is removed from the cathode and/or anode.
