User: What is difference between DIAC and TRIAC?

Weegy: The triac is similar in operation to two thyristors connected in reverse parallel but using a common gate connection. [ This gives the triac the ability to be triggered into conduction while having a voltage of either polarity across it while This is a bi-directional trigger diode used mainly in firing Triacs and Thyristors in AC control circuits. ]

DIAC is designed to break over voltage. It has around 30 volts. TRAIC are used for power control. The main difference is that TRAIC trigger voltage is on an independent port.
