Vishay Intertechnology Announces 'Super 12' Featured Products for 2012

Innovative Components Offer Industry-Leading Specifications for a Variety of Applications

MALVERN, Pa. - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced its "Super 12" featured products for 2012. Each year, Vishay's Super 12 collection showcases the company's industry-leading capabilities in semiconductor and passive devices, providing design engineers with a shortcut to leading industry specs and a cross-section of Vishay's very broad product portfolio.

The Super 12 products for 2012 are:

MKP1848S Film Capacitors - These slim metallized DC polypropylene film capacitors for DC-link applications feature the industry's broadest CV range from 2 µF to 100 µF, voltage ratings from 500 VDC to 1,000 VDC, and low profiles of 12 mm, 15 mm, 18 mm, and 24 mm.

VCUT05D1-SD0 BiSy Single-Line ESD Protection Diode - Offered in the new ultra-compact CLP0603 silicon package, the diode provides low capacitance of 10 pF for signal and data line protection from transient voltage signals in portable electronics.

34 THE Non-Contacting Multi-Turn Sensor - The industry's first multi-turn sensor to feature non-contacting technology, the 34 THE offers a very long life of 50 million cycles with a servo mount and 10 million cycles with a bushing mount, and is available with any electrical angle up to 3600° maximum.

45 V Trench MOS Barrier Schottky TMBS® Single-Chip Rectifiers - These rectifiers feature a wide range of current ratings from 10 A to 40 A and extremely low forward voltage drops down to 0.51 V typical at 20 A. The devices are optimized for use in solar cell junction boxes as bypass diodes.

MPM Matched Pair Resistor Network - The MPM features tight ratio tolerance and close TCR tracking with divider ratios of 1:1 to 100:1 for process controls, test and measurement, instrumentation, signal conditioning, and data acquisition applications.

CNY6 Series CAT IV Optocouplers - CNY6 optocouplers are the industry's first such devices available in surface-mount packages and optimized for solar and wind turbine installations. The optocouplers protect equipment and people from being damaged or injured by a high-voltage spike or transient of up to 12,000 V and a recurring peak voltage of 1450 V, while allowing data to pass from the high-voltage side to low-voltage monitoring equipment.

IHLP® 3232 Series Low-Profile, High-Current Inductors - These inductors are high-performing, space- and power-saving solutions for voltage regulator module (VRM) and DC/DC converter applications in mobile devices, notebooks, desktop computers, servers, graphic cards, portable gaming systems, personal navigation systems, and more.

SiHG73N60E E Series 600 V High-Voltage MOSFETs - The MOSFETs feature on-resistance of 39 mÙ at a 10 V gate drive and ultra-low gate charge of 362 nC maximum for outstanding performance in SMPS, PFC, lighting, and industrial applications.

TM8 MICROTAN® Tantalum Capacitor - For critical high-reliability medical and military-aerospace applications, the TM8 features very low DC leakage current in compact case sizes along with customizable screening options, including Weibull failure rate grading.

SiSA04DN 30 V MOSFET - Offered in the thermally advanced PowerPAK® 1212-8 package, this TrenchFET® Gen IV device features on-resistance down to 2.5 mÙ and a gate charge down to 22.5 nC for a DC/DC conversion figure of merit (FOM) of 56.

TNPU e3 High-Precision Thin Film Chip Resistor - Combines reliability and an advanced level of precision - with tolerances as low as ± 0.05 % and TCR values down to ± 5 ppm/K - for amplifiers, precision voltage dividers, and control units in industrial, automotive, aerospace, medical, and telecommunications equipment.

SiP12107/8 Scalable Step-Down Regulators - The SiP12107/8 are high-frequency current-mode constant on-time (CM-COT) synchronous buck regulators with integrated high-side and low-side power MOSFETs. Their power stage is capable of supplying 3 A or 5 A continuous current at a 4 MHz switching frequency for computing, consumer electronics, telecommunications, and industrial applications.
