Vishay Intertechnology to Showcase Wide Range of Industry-Leading Technologies at PCIM Europe 2014

MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced its technology lineup for PCIM (Power Conversion Intelligent Motion) Europe 2014, taking place May 20-22 in Nuremberg, Germany. In booth 9-212 at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, the company will be highlighting its latest industry-leading semiconductor, optoelectronics, and passive component technologies for a variety of applications.

Passive components from Vishay on display at PCIM Europe 2014 will include a wide variety of the company's latest capacitors, resistors, and inductors. Featured capacitors will include Vishay Draloric high-voltage (up to 40 kVp) ceramic RF power (up to 4000 kvar) devices; Vishay BCcomponents power aluminum electrolytic capacitors that feature long life and high-temperature performance and film interference suppression devices; Vishay ESTA power electronic capacitors for wind turbines, industrial and traction drives, and power factor correction applications; Vishay Vitramon multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) for safety-certified applications; Vishay Cera-Mite high-voltage, screw-mounting ceramic disc capacitors; and Vishay Roederstein polypropylene film capacitors for DC-link applications.

Highlights of Vishay's line of resistors will consist of Vishay Dale WSL®, WSBS, and WSMS high-current shunts for power meter and intelligent battery management; Vishay Draloric devices designed for high performance in harsh environments, including the VSGR stainless steel power resistor, the ULDCR braking/crowbar resistor, the VACR aluminum housed wirewound resistor, the ZBS cemented wirewound resistor, and the GBS vitreous-coated wirewound resistor; Vishay Milwaukee universal edgewound power resistors; and Vishay Sfernice and Vishay Spectrol sensors featuring Hall effect technology. For DC/DC converters, featured Vishay Dale inductors will include IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductors in the 6767 case size and IHTH high-current, high-temperature (up to 155 °C) through-hole inductors, in addition to planar transformers for hybrid car inverter applications.

Vishay Siliconix power MOSFETs on view at the exhibit will include high-efficiency 600 V and 650 V E Series devices for high-voltage power conversion, motor control, and power factor correction applications. To address the increasing demands associated with automotive designs, specifically in powertrain and hybrid vehicle applications, low-profile, high-power-density AEC-Q101-qualified SQ Series MOSFETs in the PowerPAK® SO8L package will be featured along with the Vishay Siliconix bare Known Good Die (KGD) MOSFET offering. Highlighted power ICs will include the SiP324xx family of slew-rate-controlled load switches with low and flat on-resistance down to 20 mÙ for portable electronics and the SiC620R, a 70-A-capable, dual-sided, cooled VRPower® DrMOS power stage.

Featured products from Vishay Optoelectronics will consist of IGBT and MOSFET drivers with a minimum 10 mm clearance and external creepage distance for motor drives, alternative energy, and other high-working-voltage applications; in addition to Cat IV high-isolation optocouplers in surface-mount packages for solar and wind turbines. For automotive, industrial, and telecom applications, Vishay will be highlighting diodes in a variety of low-profile packages, including 45 V to 120 V TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky rectifiers in the SMPA (DO-221BC) and SMPD (TO-263AC) packages and FRED Pt® ultrafast recovery rectifiers in the SlimSMA (DO-221AC) and SMF (DO-219AC) packages. In addition, power modules in the EMIPAK-2B package featuring solderless pressfit technology will be on display.

Vishay will present two Forum speeches at PCIM. Vishay marketing expert Michael Dernbach will present "Vishay Battery Shunts for Battery Management" on May 20 at 10:40 a.m. On May 22 at 1:20 p.m., Jessica Braun will present "Composite Power Inductors and High-Current Coupled Inductors."
