MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — July 28, 2009 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the debut of a Medical Virtual Trade Show on its web site at www.vishay.com/landingpage/tradeshows/virtual/medical/. The new virtual show uses interactive posters to highlight Vishay components for portable diagnostic, implantable and magnetic resonance imaging applications. It also provides links to product demonstration videos, literature, promotional material, technical articles, and other information.

Vishay is working with a number of customers in the expanding medical market and manufactures a wide variety of semiconductors and passive components for medical applications.

As shown in Vishay's Medical Virtual Trade Show, Vishay components for portable diagnostic applications include the following:

  • Infrared emitting diodes for light therapy: Rejuvenate skin and increase blood flow to affected areas
  • NOMC precision thin film 14- to 16-lead resistor networks: Tight ratio tolerances and TCR tracking
  • CZA surface-mount thick film chip resistor attenuator: Single component reduces board space and component count
  • High-Q RF multilayer ceramic chip capacitor (MLCC): For portable Bluetooth® applications
  • ESD protection diodes in LLP1006 package: Provide dataport and keypad ESD protection

Vishay components for MRI include the following:

  • eSMP™ rectifiers: Miniaturized package for higher current density and better thermal performance
  • SiC769 35-A DrMOS Solution in PowerPAK® package: Industry-best power density for mainstream, multi-phase Vcore applications
  • Non-magnetic MLCCs: Meet the requirement for non-ferrous material in MRI rooms
  • LPS300, LPS600, and LPS800 thick film power resistors: High power for space constrained designs

Vishay components for implantable applications include the following:

  • IrDA® infrared transceivers: Upload biometer data to PCs
  • High-reliability MLCCs: Meet critical life-support applications
  • NTCS negative temperature coefficient (NTC) surface-mount glass-protected thermistor: Precision down to 1 %, in both R and B values
  • CS33/CN bare network for wire bonding: High reliability
