MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - September 25, 2000 - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH), will be a key participant in CARTS-Europe 2000, to be held 16-20 October 2000 at theCrowne Plaza Hotel in Brussels, Belgium. Now in its 14th year in Europe, the annual European Passive Components Conference(CARTS-Europe) showcases products, technologies, and market trends that are shaping the global passive-component industry.
Passive components (so-called because they do not amplify DC current or voltage) represent 60% to 90% of the parts in a typical electronic product. They are the "building blocks" needed to support the operation of electronic circuits. CARTS-Europe is the only European event of its kind to focus exclusively on passive electronic components. Vishay's participation in CARTS-Europe 2000 includes a keynote speech by Glyndwr Smith, Assistant to the CEO and Senior Vice President, as well as six symposium papers and two seminars (see list below).
Keynote Speech: "Resistors and Capacitors: A Renaissance"
Symposium Papers:"Foil Resistors Used as Low Energy Electro-pyrotechnic Initiators", "Zero TCR Foil Resistor: Ten-Fold Improvement in Temperature Coefficient", "An Updatee on apacitors for Portable Electronics", "Choosing Capacitors for Reliable Automotive Application", "Reliable In-Circuit Testing of Passives", "Qualification Testing on Ceramic Chip Capacitors for the Automotive Industry"
Seminars: "Component Trends in the Automotive Market", "Trends and New Technology in Telecommunications"
