Each year Vishay releases thousands of new components that enable customers to create new and superior end products. We recognize that offering unique component solutions helps improve the performance of next-generation devices, overcome technical barriers, and create new markets. Inside the Engineer's Toolbox we have highlighted, with our partner Digi-Key, some of the innovative components Vishay manufactures that help design engineers develop superior end products. There are five major market segments (Alternative Energy, Automotive, Industrial / Power, Lighting, and Medical), with highlighted Vishay components for each segment and lists of their key features. Each of these components is linked to Digi-Key's e-commerce system to enable customers to purchase them.
