This is a sensitive gate TRIAC (also known as a thyristor) with a 200V blocking voltage in a bread board friendly TO-92 package. Use a triac to control an AC load (like EL wire, small incandescent lamps, etc) from a DC source (like the GPIO on a microcontroller).

Checkout our EL wire on a straight jacket tutorial!
