What is the difference between Latching Current and Holding Current in an SCR ?

Latching current is the minimum current which is required to flow from the anode to the cathode to switch "ON" the SCR.

Holding current is the minimum current which needs to keep flowing to keep the SCR in the 'ON' state.

The Latching current will be greater than the Holding current for an SCR.
