The Wortman model of a semiconductor junction under anisotropic stress is applied to silicon controlled rectifiers using a two transistor equivalent circuit. Stress dependence is demonstrated by the model. A method of stress induced triggering is described and shown experimentally using a Motorola 2N2323, silicon controlled rectifier.
