Vishay Intertechnology to Highlight Leading Military-Qualified Resistors and Custom Magnetics at CMSE 2014

MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that the company will be showcasing its extensive offering of military-qualified resistors and custom magnetics capabilities at the 2014 Components for Military and Space Electronics (CMSE) conference and exhibition. The event will take place Feb. 18-20 at the LAX Radisson Hotel in Los Angeles.

CMSE is the premier conference on designing military and space systems with military-qualified and COTS components, subsystems, and software. In booth B-4, Vishay will be displaying a wide variety of military-qualified resistors with established reliability. These will include metal, thick, and thin film chip resistors; leaded and housed wirewound devices; and thick and thin film resistor networks.

Vishay will also be showcasing the company's complete design, build, and test capabilities for custom magnetics in military applications such as cockpit and flight controls, missile launch and guidance systems, radar, and fire control systems. On display will be space components tested to MIL-STD 981 and TOR; military custom connectors with a broad range of contact structures, plating, header, and profile options; and custom power supplies, conditioners, filters, UPS, and battery assemblies.

At CMSE 2014, Vishay will also be highlighting high-precision resistors for non-QPL military applications. Featured products will include ribwound and roundwire resistors with power ratings to 2000 W and resistance down to 0.01 Ω Power Metal Strip® resistors; metal film resistors with tolerances to ± 0.01 % and flameproof devices with power ratings to 3 W in compact sizes; high- and medium-voltage thick film chips and dividers; and thin film devices with high operating temperatures to +250°C.
