Press release date: May 6, 2008

MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - May 6, 2008 - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that the companys SiP12510 and SiP12511 white LED drivers have won the 2008 EE Times Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Award in the category of Ultimate Products of the Year, Analog ICs. The ACE Awards recognize the electronics engineering industry's most innovative companies and breakthrough technologies.

The Vishay Siliconix SiP12510 and SiP12511 are 1.25-MHz current-mode boost converters with a feedback reference voltage of 0.1 V. Their typical efficiency of 90 % is the highest ever achieved for this device type. For any battery-operated consumer product with a liquid crystal display such as a digital camera, PDA, cellular phone, or game device the SiP12510 and SiP12511 provide superior performance to enable image brightness and clarity.

The EE Times ACE Awards are judged by a panel of industry experts, comprised of the leading voices of academia, industry, and Wall Street executives. The Ultimate Products of the Year are awarded to the most significant products introduced in the last 12 months in each of seven categories, as determined by large-scale peer review. Finalists in each category were chosen by qualified readers of EE Times and eeProductCenter.com on a quarterly basis via electronic balloting, from a list of nominees submitted to readers by expert editors with accompanying editorial reviews. The winners of these prestigious awards were announced on April 15 at the ACE Awards Gala in San Jose, California.
