Vishay Intertechnology Announces "Super 12" Featured Products for 2014

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 2014. Each year, Vishay identifies a dozen key semiconductor and passive components featuring new and improved technologies that can significantly improve the performance of end products and systems. Vishay's Super 12 collection showcases the company's industry-leading capabilities in semiconductor and passive devices and provides a cross-section of Vishay's very broad product portfolio.

The Super 12 products for 2014 are:

Vishay Dale WSLP Surface-Mount Power Metal Strip® Resistor — For high performance in automotive, computer, industrial, and consumer applications, the WSLP combines high power ratings to 10 W, extremely low resistance values down to 0.0003 Ω, and tight resistance tolerances to 0.5 % in compact case sizes.

Vishay Semiconductors TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky Rectifiers in SMPA Package — Offering low forward voltage drop down to 0.37 V at 3 A and a slim 0.95 mm profile, 45 V devices in the SMPA package are AEC-Q101-qualified for automotive applications while 50 V rectifiers are ideal for smartphone and tablet chargers.

Vishay Sfernice PRAHT High-Precision Thin Film SMD Wraparound Chip Resistors — Optimized for high-temperature down-hole and aeronautics applications, the PRAHT four-resistor networks feature an operating temperature range from -55°C to +215°C with a maximum storage temperature up to +230°C, an industry first for any resistor array built on thin film technology.

Vishay Semiconductors TCPT1350X01/TCUT1350X01 SMD Transmissive Optical Sensors — For automotive and industrial applications, the AEC-Q101-qualified single-channel TCPT1350X01 and dual-channel TCUT1350X01 combine an industry-high operating temperature to +125°C with a wide 3.0 mm gap and typical output current of 1.6 mA.

Vishay Dale IHCL Composite-Coupled Inductors — Built on Vishay's IHLP® technology for high performance in SEPIC DC/DC converters, IHCL devices integrate two inductors in one compact 10.16 mm by 10.67 mm package with coupling > 90% and high-temperature performance to +155°C.

Vishay Siliconix SiZ340DT Dual N-Channel 30 V MOSFET — Featuring TrenchFET® Gen IV technology, the asymmetric dual power MOSFET provides 57% lower on-resistance, up to 25% higher power density, and 5% higher efficiency than previous-generation devices in the PowerPAIR® 3 mm by 3 mm package size.

Vishay Roederstein MKP1848C Metallized Polypropylene DC-Link Film Capacitor — For DC-link applications, the MKP1848C offers the industry's broadest capacitance range of 1 µF to 500 µF, compact footprints down to 9 mm by 32 mm by 19 mm, and voltage ratings from 500 V to 1200 V.

Vishay Siliconix SiP12109 microBUCK® Integrated Synchronous Buck Regulator — The 4 A SiP12109 features integrated high- and low-side power MOSFETs in the space-saving 3 mm by 3 mm QFN-16 package, providing designers with a complete high-current solution in only 180 mm².

Vishay Vitramon QUAD HIFREQ Series MLCCs — Designed for high-frequency RF applications in telecommunications, medical, military, and industrial equipment and instrumentation, the QUAD HIFREQ series features ultra-high Q > 2000, ultra-low ESR down to 0.01 Ω in the 1111 case size, and voltage ratings to 1500 V.

Vishay Siliconix SiHG47N60E / E Series High-Voltage MOSFETs — Part of Vishay's E Series of 600 V MOSFETs, the SiHG47N60E's low on-resistance of 99 mΩ and gate charge of 147 nC at 10 V translate into extremely low conduction and switching losses to save energy in high-power, high-performance switch mode applications.

Vishay MCB WCR Water-Cooled Power Resistor — Offering very high power dissipation up to 2500 W at 60°C water inlet temperature and tolerant of high pulses up to 5000 W for 10 s, the WCR is optimized as a snubber and DC grading resistor for large drives and HVDC/SVC.

Vishay Semiconductors TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky Rectifiers in SMPD Package — For commercial applications, the 45 V to 120 V devices offer low forward voltage drop down to 0.40 V at 15 A. Their SMPD package is footprint-compatible with the D2PAK (TO-263) while offering a lower typical height of 1.7 mm.
