Press release date: December 3, 2008

MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - Dec. 3, 2008 - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that its TR8 molded MicroTan(TM) tantalum chip capacitor was honored with an EDN China Innovation Award in the Passive Component, Connector, and Sensor category. Vishay received the award at a ceremony held on November 6 at the The Jinjiang Shenzhen Airlines Hotel in Shenzhen, China. Accepting the award on behalf of Vishay was Tommy Cheng, Tantalum/MLCC Field Application Manager.

Instituted in 2005, EDN China magazine's annual Innovation Awards honor the people, products, and technologies that have shaped the semiconductor industry over the past year. Products nominated for the 2008 Innovation Awards were assessed and selected by a panel of EDN China judges made up of industry experts and specialists from China's leading OEM companies, academic institutes, universities, and EDN China's editorial board. Readers and registered users of EDN China voted for the winners.

Taking home the award in the Passive Component, Connector, and Sensor category, the Vishay Sprague TR8 MicroTan(TM) tantalum chip capacitor provides ultra-low ESR values of 0.8 W (at 100 kHz and 47 µF) in the 0805 case size, and an industry-low 1.5 W in the 0603 case size. Low ESR values, combined with small 0603 and 0805 footprints, allow for greater efficiency in audio filtering and signal processing applications, while requiring less PCB space. The TR8 capacitor is intended for applications in cell phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, and other portable devices.

Like all series in the Vishay MicroTan(TM) family, the TR8 is fully RoHS-compliant and halogen-free. The devices feature lead (Pb)-free, L-shape facedown terminations for better contact to the solder pad than traditional facedown-style terminations. In addition, their rectangular molded case encapsulation helps to streamline PCB assembly.

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., a Fortune 1,000 Company listed on the NYSE (VSH), is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, rectifiers, transistors, and optoelectronics and selected ICs) and passive electronic components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, sensors, and transducers). These components are used in virtually all types of electronic devices and equipment, in the industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, and medical markets. Its product innovations, successful acquisition strategy, and ability to provide "one-stop shop" service have made Vishay a global industry leader. Vishay can be found on the Internet at
