Vishay Intertechnology to Feature Industry-Leading MOSFETs, Passive Components, Diodes, and Power ICs at APEC 2014

MALVERN, Pa. – Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced its technology lineup for the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC) 2014, taking place March 16-20 in Fort Worth, Texas. In booth 921, the company will be highlighting its latest industry-leading power MOSFET, passive component, diode, and power IC technologies for a wide range of applications.

Vishay Siliconix power MOSFET technologies on display at APEC 2014 will include TrenchFET® Gen IV devices with industry-low on-resistance down to 1.35 mΩ at 4.5 V; PowerPAIR® co-packaged MOSFETs that save space over using discrete solutions while increasing power density and efficiency; TrenchFET p-channel Gen III devices with the lowest on-resistance ever achieved for p-channel MOSFETs; the AEC-Q101-qualified SQ Rugged Series; and 650 V E Series devices for increased efficiency.

Highlighted power ICs will include products from the Vishay Siliconix microBUCK® family of integrated synchronous buck regulators. High-efficiency devices with ultra-fast transient response time for network processors, DSPs, FPGAs, ASICs, set-top boxes, and more will be on display, as well as compact regulators with programmable LDO for battery-operated mobile computing devices. In addition, Vishay will be demonstrating the SiC620R 70 A DrMOS power stage for high-frequency switching > 800 kHz, and the company's free online PowerCAD design simulation tool.

For automotive and commercial applications, diodes on display from Vishay Semiconductors will include TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky rectifiers in low-profile SMPA and SMPD packages. Combining very low forward voltage drops with profiles down to 0.95 mm, the rectifiers reduce power loss and improve efficiency in low-voltage, high-frequency DC/DC converters, switching power supplies, freewheeling diodes, and polarity protection.

Vishay's passive components will consist of a wide variety of the company's latest capacitors, resistors, and inductors. Featured capacitors will include Vishay metallized polypropylene film capacitors for DC-link applications; aluminum electrolytic capacitors with ultra-long life; Vishay ESTA cylindrical capacitors for power electronics (PEC); single- and three-phase power factor correction (PFC) capacitors; and environmentally friendly X1, X2, and series impedance capacitors for severe ambient conditions.

Highlights from Vishay's line of resistors will include water-cooled power devices; thick film power resistors; high-power wirewound devices; Vishay Dale Power Metal Strip® resistors; and the industry's first axial silicone cemented, fusible wirewound safety resistor designed to ensure safe and silent fusing operation during overload conditions, while offering surge voltage withstanding capability up to 6 kV (1.2 µs/50 µs). In addition, Vishay will be providing demonstrations of the pulse load performance of it SMD film resistors.

Featured Vishay Dale inductors will include low-profile, high-current devices in a wide range of case sizes and inductance values, as well as composite-coupled devices for use in SEPIC DC/DC converters and other applications. In addition to showing these devices, Vishay will be demonstrating its IWAS-4832FF-50 wireless charging receiving coil/shield with attractor, which exceeds the minimum 70% efficiency requirements in WPC-compatible circuitry.

As the premier event in applied power electronics, APEC focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business. More information on the conference and exposition is available at
