Vishay Intertechnology to Showcase Industry-Leading Innovations at Techno-Frontier 2013

Latest Semiconductors and Passive Components Increase Efficiency and Reliability in Wide Range of Applications

MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that it will be exhibiting its latest semiconductors and passive components in booth 1D-207 at Power System Japan, a focused exhibition on power systems at Techno-Frontier 2013, being held at the Tokyo Big Sight from July 17 to 19. A component solutions provider for connectivity, mobility, and sustainability, Vishay will be highlighting industry-leading innovations across all of its product lines that provide increased efficiency and reliability for a wide range of applications.

At Techno-Frontier 2013, Vishay Siliconix will be showcasing TrenchFET® Gen IV MOSFETs with maximum on-resistance down to 0.00135 Ω at a 4.5 V gate drive; 50 W front-lighting LED drivers in PowerPAK® SO-8L and 8x8L packages; and thermally and electrically optimized PowerPAIR® devices. Highlighted power ICs will include 28 V programmable, protected smart load switches in the 3 mm by 3 mm DFN10 package; high-density 60 A power stages in 5 mm by 5 mm packages; and high-efficiency 16 V microBUCK® regulators in 3 mm by 3 mm QFN-16 packages.

Vishay Semiconductors will be featuring a variety of diodes, including 45 V to 120 V TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky rectifiers in the SMPD package; Gen2 650 V FRED Pt® Ultrafast diodes for electric vehicles, UPS, and solar inverters; and FRED Pt Hyperfast and Ultrafast recovery rectifiers. In addition, Vishay Semiconductors will highlight optoelectronics products such as SurfLight™ high-power infrared surface emitters; fully integrated proximity sensors with digital output; and 1 mA and 5 mA input current optocouplers.

Passive components from Vishay will consist of a wide variety of the company's latest capacitors, resistors, and inductors. Highlighted resistors will include Vishay Dale Power Metal Strip® resistors with high power density and high-temperature capabilities to +275 °C for harsh environments, in addition to high-current Power Metal Strip shunts for power meter and battery management applications.

Featured capacitors will include Vishay Sprague MicroTan® automotive-grade solid tantalum chip capacitors in the industry's smallest case sizes; Vishay ESTA power electronics capacitors; and Vishay Vitramon safety-certified multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs). Vishay Dale will be showcasing inductors such as low-profile, high-current IHLP® devices for automotive applications and high-temperature through-hole inductors for desktops and servers.

In addition, Vishay will be offering two demonstrations in its booth at Techno-Frontier 2013. Vishay Siliconix will be demonstrating the increased efficiency provided by its 600 V and 650 V E Series power MOSFETs. Vishay Semiconductors will be providing a system demonstration that highlights the low forward voltage and fast turn-on times of TMBS rectifiers, as well as the high impedance and reduced signal loss of low CJ TVS.
