Title:
CASCADE CONNECTION CIRCUIT
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2002033648
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide a cascade connection circuit that reduces a forward voltage drop between an anode and a cathode of the circuit so as to reduce the power loss.

This invention provides the cascade connection circuit where a bias diode is connected in parallel with each voltage balance resistor except a voltage balance resistor at a final stage among balance resistors connected in parallel with voltage controlled semiconductor elements connected in series, and an anode of the bias diode at a first stage is connected to a control electrode of the voltage controlled semiconductor element at the first stage.
