Vishay Intertechnology Announces Technology Lineup for ELECRAMA-2016

Industry-Leading Passive and Semiconductor Components Deliver High Performance for High-Voltage, Solar Energy, Smart Grid, Wind Turbine, and Traction Applications

MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced its technology lineup for ELECRAMA-2016, taking place Feb. 13-17 at the Bangalore International Exhibition Center in India. In hall 3B, booth H3M5, the company will be highlighting industry-leading passive component, power MOSFET, diode, rectifier, power module, and optoelectronics solutions for furnace, high-voltage, solar energy, smart grid, wind turbine, and train/traction applications.

Vishay passive components on display at ELECRAMA-2016 will comprise a wide variety of the company's latest capacitors, resistors, and custom magnetics. Highlighted capacitors will include Vishay ESTA 1-phase and 3-phase LVAC and HVAC power capacitors optimized for wind turbine, solar energy, high-voltage, and furnace applications, and film power electronic capacitors with self-healing and long lifetime capabilities over 100,000 hours for traction drives. In addition, Vishay will showcase single-layer ceramic devices designed for extremely high power levels up to 4,000 kvar; high-reliability, high-temperature wet tantalum capacitors for bulk energy storage filtering up to 125 V; long-life aluminum electrolytic devices; and compact surface-mount solid tantalum capacitors with low ESR.

Highlighted Vishay resistors will include high-power thick film chip devices for pulse power applications; custom high-power resistors and assemblies with ratings up to 20 kW; MELF devices with excellent reliability and surge stability; Power Metal Strip® battery shunt resistors for automotive and heavy industrial applications; high-performance surface-mount thin film devices with long life and high precision; power wirewound devices with ratings up to 2500 W; steel grid resistors for high-energy pulse load dumping; and NTC thermistors for applications with temperatures up to 900 °C. Custom magnetics on display will comprise high-reliability transformers, inductors, and military-grade power supplies.

At ELECRAMA-2016, Vishay Siliconix will highlight 500 V to 650 V E Series high-voltage MOSFETs with on-resistance down to 32 m#937; for extremely low conduction and switching losses in AC/DC power conversion for solar inverters. In addition, AEC-Q101-qualified SQ Rugged Series MOSFETs with a maximum junction temperature of +175 °C will be on display, as well as 40 V to 200 V TrenchFET® Gen IV and ThunderFET® devices with low on-resistance and gate charge in thermally advanced PowerPAK® packages.

Vishay General Semiconductor will showcase surface-mount Schottky barrier rectifiers and surface-mount TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky rectifiers with low forward voltage drop in low-profile SMF (DO-219AB) and SlimDPAK packages, and glass passivated devices with high forward surge capability to 240 A in the low-profile SMC (DO-214AB). For the protection of sensitive electronics against voltage transients, diodes on display will include TransZorb® transient voltage suppressors (TVS) with ± 3.5 % breakdown voltage tolerance in the low-profile SMBJ (DO-214AA) package and bidirectional devices with 3,000 W peak pulse capability in the SMC (DO-214AB), in addition to surface-mount PAR® TVS with high surge capability up to 5 kW in the SMC (DO-214AB).

Vishay Semiconductors will highlight optocouplers for solar and wind inverters, electric vehicles (EV), industrial inverters, and high-voltage motors. On display will be 2.5 A widebody and low-profile IGBT and MOSFET drivers and 10 MBd high-speed optocouplers with external creepage > 10 mm, as well as optocouplers with thickness through insulation 3 mm and a wide operating temperature range from -40 °C to +110 °C. For 3-level neutral point clamp (NPC11 and 2) topologies and interleaved multiple-channel MPPT (maximum power point tracking) boost converters, Vishay Semiconductors will also highlight IGBT power modules in EMIPAK-1B and EMIPAK-2B packages featuring solderless pressfit technology.

Organized by the Indian Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers' Association (IEEMA), ELECRAMA has been held biennially since 1990 and has grown into the biggest showcase in the world for the global electrical equipment industry. More information is available at
