Vishay Intertechnology to Exhibit Industry-Leading MOSFETs, ICs, Passive Components, Diodes, and Optoelectronics at APEC 2016

MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced its technology lineup for the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC) 2016, taking place March 20-24 in Long Beach, California. In booth 2017, the company will be highlighting its latest industry-leading power MOSFET, IC, passive component, diode, and optocoupler technologies for a wide range of applications.

At APEC 2016, Vishay Siliconix' power MOSFET focus will include the 600 V E Series SiHH26N60E in the compact PowerPAK® 8x8 package, which is 57 % smaller than the TO-263 (D²PAK) with one-fifth the height. The device features a Kelvin source connection to increase efficiency by improving the gate drive signal, and delivers low on-resistance down to 0.135 Ω at 10 V for extremely low conduction and switching losses. Also on display will be SUM70040E and SUP70040E 100 V ThunderFET® n-channel power MOSFETs with maximum on-resistance of 4 mΩ, which is 60 % lower per mm² than previous-generation devices.

For next-generation notebooks, ultrabooks, and desktops, highlighted power ICs from Vishay Siliconix will include SiC53x series devices, which combine power MOSFETs, an advanced MOSFET gate driver IC, and a bootstrap Schottky diode in thermally enhanced 4.5 mm by 3.5 mm PowerPAK MLP4535-22L and 5 mm by 5 mm PowerPAK MLP55-31L packages. In addition, SiC46x and SiC43x series microBUCK® fully integrated high-voltage synchronous buck regulators will be on display with output power to 60 W.

Highlighted Vishay Semiconductors diodes will consist of the VSKY20401608 commercial-grade surface-mount Schottky rectifier with high current ratings to 2 A and low forward voltage drop of 510 mV; FRED Pt® Gen 4 ultrafast diodes; and the 600 V and 650 V Trench IGBT platform featuring Punch Through (PT) and Field Stop (FS) technologies for motor drives, UPS, solar inverters, and welding machine inverters. Vishay General Semiconductor will highlight the V8PAL45 TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky rectifier in the low-profile DO-221BC (SMPA) package and the SS2FL4 surface-mount Schottky barrier rectifier in the compact DO-219AB (SMF), in addition to SMBJXXD/C TransZorb® transient voltage suppressors (TVS) in the DO-214AA (SMBJ) and 5KASMC10A through 5KASMC43A PAR® TVS in the DO-214AB (SMC).

Optoelectronics from Vishay Semiconductors will include VOR1142M4 and VOR1121B6 hybrid solid-state relays with load voltages to 400 V, and VOS618A and VOL618A optocouplers featuring low 1 mA drive current and isolation to 5000 V. Also on display will be the VOW3120 2.5 A IGBT and MOSFET driver for motor drives, alternative energy, and welding equipment; the VOW2611 10 MBd high-speed widebody optocoupler with external creepage distance ≥ 10 mm; the CNY65Exi for explosive environments; and the IL300 linear optocoupler with 0.01 % servo linearity.

Vishay's passive components on display will comprise a wide variety of the company's latest capacitors, resistors, and inductors. For energy harvesting and power backup applications, featured Vishay BCcomponents energy storage capacitors — ENYCAP — will include the 196 HVC series of hybrid devices with energy density of 13 Ws/g, and the 220 EDLC series of electrical double-layer capacitors in power and energy versions. Also on display will be Vishay BCcomponents snap-in 096PLL-4TSI and screw terminal 102 PHR-ST aluminum capacitors for drive applications; the industry's first Y1 20 nF capacitor — an extension of the Vishay Cera-Mite 440L series — and Vishay BCcomponents AY2 and VY1 compact series of AC-line-rated ceramic disc safety capacitors; Vishay Roederstein MKP1858 and MKP1847 metallized polypropylene capacitors for DC-linking and AC filtering; and Vishay ESTA GLI, EMKP, HDMKP, and DCMKP capacitors for power electronics.

Highlighted resistors will consist of the Vishay Dale WSHM2818 Power Metal Strip current sense resistor with high power to 7 W; Vishay Draloric AC..CS axial silicone-cemented fusible wirewound safety resistors for electric appliances and energy meters; Vishay Beyschlag MMA 0204 HV and MMB 0207 HV professional high-voltage thin film MELF resistors with high continuous operating voltage up to 1000 V; the Vishay MCB WCR water-cooled wirewound resistor, RCEC thick film power resistors, and RCMC resistors for high energy pulses; Vishay Sfernice LPS thick film high power resistors and AEC-Q200-qualified LTO, DTO, and D2TO thick film resistors; Vishay Milwaukee GRE1 and GRE2 grid resistors with high power to 24 kW; and Vishay Huntington FST and FVE tubular wirewound resistors. For temperature sensing, the Vishay BCcomponents wAEC-Q200-qualified NTCALUG01T NTC lug sensor and PTSCL03 and NTCLE213 mini leaded thermistors will be on display.

Featured Vishay Dale low-profile, high-current inductors will include the new IFLR series single-turn devices with current ratings up to 50 A; Automotive Grade IHLD and IHLP® series inductors with operating temperatures up to + 180 C; and IHCL series composite-coupled inductors for use in SEPIC DC/DC converters. Vishay will also hold demonstrations of its new IHLE series inductors with integrated e-shields and IWTX and IWAS wireless charging transmitter and receiver coils.

Vishay also offers custom magnetics with knowledgeable engineers that can help customers develop unique coil solutions. Vishay's switchmode transformer designs, including planar transformers, make it possible to achieve higher power density levels in ruggedized packages for AC/DC and DC/DC power converters where reliability is critical. Vishay products are certified to meet a wide range of standards, from AEC-Q200 to MIL-STD-981 for space-grade applications.
