(physics)
Property of two displacements or other vectors which lie along parallel lines but point in opposite directions.

These are based on the fact that the x and y components of an incident wave are filtered by the same anti-parallel diodes spaced in the same distance a = 10 mm.
4 consists of a MOSFET S1 with an intrinsic anti-parallel diode and an IGBT, [S.
Each shunt capacitor in the SVC system is divided into a specified number of branches that are switched on and off via anti-parallel thyristor/diode switches.
The third way to implement a SHM is based on the technique called anti-parallel diode pair (APDP).
By applying magnetic field impulses perpendicular to the direction of magnetization rather than anti-parallel to it, the magnetic poles of spinning particals can be flipped over or reversed in picoseconds rather than the nanoseconds it currently takes.
When looking at convertor design and cost there is little to choose between a single-ended armature with reversing field and a fixed rectifier with an anti-parallel armature.
Ranging from 1100-1400V, this new product family is optimized with intrinsic anti-parallel diodes for soft switching applications.
The ROHM SCH2080KE is the industry s first SiC MOSFET co-packaged with a discrete anti-parallel SiC Schottky Barrier Diode(SBD) which features forward voltage that is three times smaller than the Intrinsic body diode.
In order to improve the performance of filters with coupled lines, anti-parallel coupled-line has been adopted in implementing filters [8-13].
In the case where a magnetic field, polarized normal to the loops of the ELC resonator, is incident upon the MTM structure, anti-parallel surface currents are induced in both the wire and one metallic loop pattern of the ELC resonator, resulting in a magnetic response.
What we can learn from the fact that the similarity of histogram sequences is higher in the case of anti-parallel orientation of compared sequences is as follows.
