Vishay Intertechnology to Highlight Leading Military-Qualified and COTS Resistors and Tantalum Capacitors at CMSE 2016

MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that the company will be showcasing its extensive offering of military-qualified and COTS resistors and tantalum capacitors at the 2016 Components for Military and Space Electronics (CMSE) conference and exhibition. The event will take place March 6-9 at the Sheraton Four Points Hotel in Los Angeles.

Now in its 20th year, CMSE is the premier conference on designing military and space systems with military-qualified and COTS components, subsystems, and software. In booth B-1, Vishay Dale will be displaying a wide variety of military-qualified resistors with established reliability. These will include leaded through-hole metal film resistors; thick and thin film chip resistors; leaded and housed wirewound devices; and thick and thin film resistor networks.

Featured military-qualified tantalum capacitors at CMSE 2016 will include through-hole, surface-mount, and high-energy wet tantalum capacitors; Vishay Sprague conformal-coated and molded tantalum chip capacitors with a wide range of capacitance/voltage ratings; and hermetically sealed solid tantalum through-hole capacitors with high reliability and low current and dissipation factor. In addition, Vishay Sprague will highlight Hi-Rel COTS solid surface-mount tantalum capacitors with MIL screening and voltages to 75 V.

At CMSE 2016, Vishay will also be highlighting high-precision resistors for non-QPL military applications. Featured products will include Vishay Huntington and Vishay Milwaukee ribwound and roundwire power resistors with power ratings to 2000 W and resistance values down to 0.012 Ω; Vishay Dale Power Metal Strip resistors with low resistance values down to 0.0001 Ω, high-stability metal film resistors with tolerances to ± 0.01 %, flameproof metal film resistors with power ratings to 3 W in compact sizes, and thick film resistors with high power ratings to 22 W; Vishay Techno high- and medium-voltage thick film chips and dividers; and Vishay Dale Thin Film resistors, dividers, and networks for high-temperature operation up to +250 °C.
