Vishay Renews Military Analog Switch and Multiplexer Product Line, Reintroduces Hi-Rel DG409 Dual 4-Channel Multiplexer
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — June 21, 2010 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH), a long-time supplier of high-reliability discrete and IC components to military and aerospace customers, today announced that its Vishay Siliconix facility in Santa Clara, Calif., has been re-qualified by DSCC to manufacture analog switches and multiplexers with screening to MIL-PRF-38535. The MIL-PRF-38535 specification is a standard that establishes the performance, quality, and reliability requirements for IC components used in systems being built for hi-rel applications.
The first product to be manufactured under the new certification is a hi-rel version of the DG409, a dual four-channel differential analog multiplexer. The DG409 connects one of four differential inputs to a common dual output. It features a 44-V maximum supply rating, low on-resistance of 100 ohms, and low charge injection of 20 pC. Three military package options are available: the 16-pin CerDIP, the 20-pin LCC, and the 16-pin Flat-Pack. Additional hi-rel versions of analog switch and multiplexer products will be announced later in 2010.
The Vishay facility in Santa Clara also is in the process of becoming qualified for military MOSFETs. All Vishay Siliconix hi-rel MOSFETs and IC products are manufactured in the Santa Clara fab, and conform to the most stringent reliability requirements in the industry. Vishay has long-term relationships with virtually all of the distributors serving hi-rel markets.
In addition to MIL-PRF-38535, Vishay Siliconix continues to offer source-controlled drawing capabilities to allow space-level screening.
Samples and production quantities of the hi-rel DG409 multiplexer are available now, with lead times of 20 weeks for larger orders.
