Vishay Intertechnology to Showcase Efficiency and Reliability With Leading Technologies at Techno-Frontier 2014 in Japan
MALVERN, Pa. — July 21, 2014 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that it will be exhibiting its latest semiconductors and passive components in booth 1C-205 at Power System Japan, a focused exhibition on power systems at Techno-Frontier 2014, being held at the Tokyo Big Sight from July 23 to 25, 2014. A component solutions provider for connectivity, mobility, and sustainability, Vishay will be highlighting industry-leading innovations — including passive components, diodes, power MOSFETs, and optoelectronics — that provide increased efficiency and reliability for a wide range of applications.
To address the increasing demands associated with automotive designs, specifically in powertrain and hybrid vehicle applications, at Techno-Frontier 2014 Vishay Siliconix will be showcasing its low-profile, high-power-density AEC-Q101-qualified SQ Series MOSFETs in a wide range of packages. Optimized for automotive excellence, SQ Series devices are produced using a special process flow in fabrication and assembly to reduce defects. Featuring low on-resistance n- and p-channel TrenchFET® technologies, the MOSFETs are rated for a maximum junction temperature of +175 °C and offer a rugged silicon design. Also featured will be Vishay Siliconix DrMOS solutions and analog switches.
For automotive and solar inverter applications, Vishay will be featuring diodes in a variety of low-profile packages, including 45 V to 120 V TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky rectifiers in the SMPA (DO-221BC) and SMPD (TO-263AC) packages, and FRED Pt® ultrafast recovery rectifiers in the SlimSMA (DO-221AC) and SMF (DO-219AB) packages. In addition, power modules in the EMIPAK-2B package featuring solderless pressfit technology will be on display.
Vishay will also highlight optoelectronics products for MRI machines, computer servers, and alternative energy and industrial applications. Devices on display will consist of 5 MBd high-speed optocouplers, matched infrared emitters and phototransistors, high-brightness 0603 ChipLEDs, 2.5 A IGBT and MOSFET drivers, and solid-state relays.
Passive components from Vishay will consist of a wide variety of the company’s latest capacitors, resistors, and inductors. Highlighted resistors will include Vishay Dale Power Metal Strip® resistors with high-temperature capabilities to +275 °C, and high-current Power Metal Strip shunts for power meter and battery management applications; AEC-Q200-qualified Vishay Draloric/Beyschlag MELF resistors; Vishay BCcomponents high-voltage metal glaze leaded resistors; and Vishay MCB's water cooled wirewound resistor and thick film devices with power to 750 W. Also highlighted will be high-precision thin film chip resistors and Vishay Dale Thin Film PAT resistors for high-temperature applications.
Featured capacitors will include Vishay ESTA power electronic capacitors, and Vishay Roederstein polypropylene film capacitors for DC-link applications and snubber devices for solar and wind inverters. Vishay Dale will be showcasing automotive-grade low-profile, high-current IHLP® inductors, and high-temperature through-hole inductors for desktops and servers.
Vishay will also be offering three demonstrations in its booth at Techno-Frontier 2014. Vishay Dale will be demonstrating its free online IHLP inductor loss calculator tool (www.vishay.com/inductors/calculator/calculator/), in addition to the thermal EMF performance of its power shunt resistors. Vishay Semiconductors will be providing a demonstration of its gesture control sensor board, which consists of the VCNL4020 proximity sensor and two VSMF2890RGX01 infrared emitters.
