A power Darlington transistor SubscreteR** and hybrid integrated circuit consisting of two of these in parallel with a fast recovery diode are described. The integrated unit is used as a dc-to-dc converter or "chopper" to control the acceleration and speed of a electric car motor and can deliver 450A of armature current. The Subscrete form permits full testing and matching of transistors...
