MALVERN, Pa. - Dec. 19, 2011 - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (VSH: NYSE) today announced that its Vishay Siliconix SiR662DP TrenchFET® power MOSFET has received a China Leading Electronic Product Award from the trade publication Application of Electronic Technique (AET).
The SiR662DP 60 V n-channel power MOSFET features the industry's lowest on-resistance and on-resistance times gate charge figure of merit (FOM) for a 60 V device in the SO-8 or PowerPAK® SO-8 package. For designers, the MOSFET's lower on-resistance translates into lower conduction losses for reduced power consumption, especially at heavy loads. Its low FOM reduces switching losses in high-frequency and switching applications, particularly at light loads and standby mode. The device's high efficiency allows designers to increase the power density of their systems and/or provide lower power loss in greener solutions.
Winners of the China Leading Electronic Product Awards were selected by users at www.ChinaAET.com over a two-month period. Of 118 nominated products, 31 were selected for awards, with the SiR662DP winning an award in the Discrete Components category.
Application of Electronic Technique was founded in 1975 and covers the electronics, telecommunications, industrial control, and computer industries in China. This is the third year that the magazine has presented the China Leading Electronic Product Awards.
