-The redesigned Web site of Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH),provides quick and easy access to Vishay product information. Visitors tothe Web site - www.vishay.com - can retrieve information via model number,keyword search, and a wide range of technical parameters. A unique featureof the site is a parametric search system that enables users to designcustomized searches for specific surface-mount passive components andpower MOSFETs.

The parametric search system lets users choose and combine searchcategories (technology, case size, voltage, resistance, etc.); defineranges within those categories; and activate the search with a simplemouse click. The system then identifies all Vishay components that meetthe specified parameters. By the end of this summer, the parametric searchsystem is scheduled to include all Vishay surface-mount passive componentsand discrete semiconductors.

The Vishay Web site, images of which were featured in a recent CNBCinterview with Dr. Felix Zandman, Chairman and CEO, also includes keywordsearch and model number search functions.The keyword search enables users to type in specific categories, such as"wirewound resistors," and access documents that match any or all of thekeywords. With the model number search, users can retrieve informationabout Vishay products by typing in either Vishay model numbers orcompetitor model numbers that have Vishay equivalents.

On average, more than 4,000 users visit the Vishay Web site each day.Activity on the site increased from 950,000 "hits" in January 2000 to 4.4million in May 2000. In addition, the average visitor session length hasdoubled to ten minutes and 26 seconds. These statistics indicate thatusers are taking advantage of the wealth of product information nowavailable on the Vishay Web site

"Vishay has the broadest product portfolio of any electronic componentmanufacturer," commented Glyndwr Smith, Assistant to the CEO and SeniorVice President. "Our components set new standards for precision andreliability. Our Web site's new features make it easy for customers tofind Vishay product information that meets their needs, whether they aredesign engineers, sales personnel, purchasing agents, or other individualsinterested in passive components or discrete semiconductors."

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., a Fortune 1000 Company listed on the NYSE (VSH), is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, MOSFETs, and infrared optoelectronics) and passive electronic components (resistors, inductors, and capacitors). These components are used in virtually all types of electronic devices and equipment, in the industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, power supplies, and medical markets. Vishay’s product innovations, successful acquisition strategy, and "one-stop shop" service have made it a global industry leader. Vishay can be found on the Internet at www.vishay.com.
