Vishay Intertechnology’s SQJ402EP MOSFET and DG250x Analog Switches Honored With 2014 CEM Editors’ Choice Awards
MALVERN, Pa. — Feb. 25, 2015 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that the company’s SQJ402EP 100 V n-channel power MOSFET and DG250x series of precision monolithic quad single-pole single-throw (SPST) analog switches have received China Electronic Market (CEM) magazine’s 2014 Editors’ Choice Awards.
Winners of the 2014 CEM Editors’ Choice Awards were chosen based on their sales performance in the Chinese market and technological innovation. Vishay’s SQJ402EP and DG250x series were selected because of their demonstrated success in the categories of “The Most Competitive Solution for Auto Electronics in China” and “The Most Competitive Solution for Wearable Devices in China," respectively.
Among the first AEC-Q101-qualified TrenchFET® power MOSFETs to feature ThunderFET® technology, the Vishay Siliconix SQJ402EP offers the lowest on-resistance values available in the compact 5 mm by 6 mm PowerPAK® SO-8L package — half the size of the DPAK — to increase efficiency and save space in automotive applications. With continuous drain currents to 32 A, the MOSFET is optimized for injector boost applications in automotive engine control units and flyback converters for lighting ballasts in lighting control units. With low total gate charge of 34 nC typical, the SQJ402EP also provides a low on-resistance times gate charge figure of merit (FOM) to reduce switching losses and improve total system efficiency.
Offered in the ultra-compact WCSP 4 bump by 4 bump array package, the Vishay Siliconix DG2501, DG2502, and DG2503 are the smallest SPST analog switches in the industry, saving space in wearable electronics and sensors, and portable healthcare, consumer, industrial, and communication devices. Measuring 1.4 mm by 1.4 mm with a 0.35 mm pitch and top-side lamination for increased ruggedness, the DG2501, DG2502, and DG2503 are 50 % smaller than the closest competing device and 95 % smaller than switches in the standard QFN16 package. The devices combine their compact size with typical power consumption of < 0.01 µW to prolong battery life.
CEM magazine has presented the Editors' Choice Awards annually since 2011. In that year, Vishay's VJ series of non-magnetic MLCCs won in "The Most Competitive Capacitor in China" category. In 2012, the company's MKP1848 metallized DC polypropylene film capacitor and Si7655DN p-channel MOSFET took home the honors in "The Most Competitive Capacitor in China" and "The Most Competitive Power Devices in China" categories, respectively.
The 2014 CEM Editors’ Choice Award winners were announced in the January 2015 issue of the magazine.
