Vishay Intertechnology to Exhibit Leading High-Frequency, Precision, and Wire-Bondable MLCCs, Resistors, and Inductors at IMS2014

MALVERN, Pa. – Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced its technology lineup for the 2014 IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS2014), being held from June 1-6 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa Bay, Florida. At the conference and exhibition, the company will be highlighting its latest industry-leading multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) and surface-mount and wire-bondable thin film products.

In booth 1446, Vishay Vitramon will showcase its line of QUAD high-frequency, high-power MLCCs in the 0505, 1111, and 2525 case sizes, which feature high Q > 2000, ultra-low ESR down to 0.01 Ω, and voltage ratings from 200 V to 3600 V. The devices are optimized for a wide range of high-frequency applications, including MRI coils and generators, RF instrumentation, and impedance matching networks.

In addition, Vishay Vitramon's surface-mount, high-frequency MLCCs in the 0402, 0603, and 0805 case sizes will be on display. The devices are designed to reduce signal loss and energy consumption in applications such as VoIP networks; cellular base stations; and satellite, WiFi (802.11), and WiMAX (802.16) wireless communication.

At IMS2014, Vishay Dale will be highlighting a wide range of precision thin film resistors, including devices with high frequency response to 20 GHz; high power ratings to 2.5 W; low TCR of 5 ppm/°C; high operating temperatures to +215 °C; and AEC-Q200 qualification. In addition, high-reliability resistor networks qualified to MIL-PRF-55342 in a variety of package options will be on display.

Vishay Electro-Films (EFI) will be demonstrating surface-mount thin film RF capacitors with low DCR and high Q for impedance matching circuits. Featured wire-bondable products will include thin film resistors in the compact 0402 case size for amplifiers, oscillators, and attenuators; and thin film RF spiral inductors with low parasitic capacitance for RF tuning circuits and lumped element filters.

Also on display will be Vishay EFI's custom substrates with sidewall patterning. Ideal for high-frequency circuits in RF applications and high-bit-rate transceivers, the substrates feature a plate thickness of ≤ 0.025 inches and minimum gap of 0.003 inches, and they are available in a variety of metal systems.

Part of International Microwave Week, IMS is the world's premier microwave conference. It features a large trade show, technical sessions, interactive forums, workshops, short courses, and panel sessions covering a wide range of topics, including wireless communication, RF technologies, microwave electronics and applications, and more.
