MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — June 12, 2009 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) is pleased to announce that its Alternative Energy Virtual Trade Show has debuted on the Company website. The virtual trade show is a new web 2.0 application that uses interactive posters to highlight Vishay components for solar power, hybrid technology, and turbine power applications. It also has links to product demonstration videos, literature and promotional material, technical articles, and other information. The Alternative Energy Virtual Trade Show can be viewed at http://www.vishay.com/landingpage/tradeshows/virtual

Vishay is working with a number of customers in the alternative energy sector. One example is the manufacturer of an innovative electric automobile. The vehicle, scheduled for launch in 2010, includes Vishay solid-state relays, power MOSFETs, thick film power resistors, thick film chip resistors, multilayer ceramic chip (MLCC) capacitors, and other Vishay components.

As shown in Vishay's Alternative Energy Virtual Trade Show, Vishay components for wind turbine applications include the following:

  • PhMKP aluminum low-voltage capacitors and ESTAdry® D-type capacitors: Prevent energy loss with power factor correction (PFC)
  • HVArc Guard® multilayer ceramic chip (MLCC) capacitors: Protect circuits from overvoltage and surface arc-over
  • Vitreous wirewound resistors: Provide humidity protection
  • LPS300, LPS600, and LPS800 thick film power resistors: High power capabilities and high dielectric strength of 12 kVRMS are intended for power supply, inverter, converter, snubber, and discharge resistor applications in windmills
  • Negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors: Provide good electrical insulation and good thermal contact with the chassis
  • MAGN-A-PAK™ and Super MAGN-A-PAK™ power modules: Feature high current capability, high surge capability, high voltage ratings
  • Add-A-Pak™ Generation V Power Modules: Feature high voltage, industry-standard package, 3500-VRMS isolating voltage
  • Add-A-Pak™ Generation VII Power Modules: Provide high surge capability, excellent thermal performance, 3500 VRMS isolating voltage, low thermal resistance

Vishay components for hybrid automobiles include the following:

  • IHLP® and IHTH high-current, low-profile inductors: Feature high current-handling capabilities and handle high transient current spikes without saturation
  • LPT-3535 and LPT-4545 customizable, SMD torodial Kool Mu® transformers: Provide customized solutions
  • DCMKP power electronic capacitors: Feature high impulse current rating up to 10 kA, low self-inductance of <100 nH, ability to withstand heavy-duty shock and vibration, and high reliability and life expectancy
  • VJ….31 and VJ….34 MLCC capacitors: Provide high electrostatic discharge (ESD) resistance for demanding automotive applications
  • MELF, carbon film, and thin film resistors: Feature excellent stability in range of environmental conditions
  • Wirewound resistors: Feature very high pulse withstanding
  • NTC thermistors: Provide temperature control and regulation of battery packs
  • LPS 300, LPS 600, and LPS 800 thick film power resistors: Will be used in circuit boards of hybrid and all-electric vehicles
  • ACAS 0606 AT and ACAS 0612 AT thin film chip resistor arrays: Deliver stable performance for automotive electronics, including engine control units, transmission controls, information, safety, power supply, body electronics, and braking systems

Vishay components for solar power include the following:

  • IHLP® and IHTH high-current, low-profile inductors: Feature high current-handling capabilities and handle high transient current spikes without saturation
  • PhMKP aluminum low-voltage capacitors and ESTAdry® D-type capacitors: Prevent energy loss with PFC
  • HVArc Guard® MLCC capacitors: Protect circuits from overvoltage and surface arc-over
