Vishay Intertechnology's IWAS-4832FF-50 Wireless Charging Receiving Coil, RFCS Capacitors, 20 LHE Hall Effect Sensor, and VLMx1300 LEDs Selected for Electronic Design's Annual "Top 101 Components"
MALVERN, Pa. - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that the company's IWAS-4832FF-50 wireless charging receiving coil, RFCS thin film RF capacitors, 20 LHE Hall effect linear position sensor, and VLMx1300 LEDs have been selected for Electronic Design's "Top 101 Components." The annual list compiles the 101 most popular components from the previous year among readers of the magazine's Products of the Week newsletter.
#9 - IWAS-4832FF-50 Wireless Charging Receiving Coil
For wireless power base stations and receivers, the IWAS-4832FF-50 is the industry's first commercially available powdered-iron-based, WPC-compliant (Wireless Power Consortium) wireless charging receiving coil optimized for use with or without an alignment magnet. Offering a durable construction and high permeability shielding, the new IWAS-4832FF-50 provides high efficiency for wireless charging of portable electronics.
