Vishay Announces "Super 12" Featured Products for 2010

Innovative Components Offer Industry-Leading Specs for a Variety of Applications

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2010) -  Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced its "Super 12" featured products for 2010. The line-up of components features industry-leading specs, such as capacitance-voltage, current rating, and on-resistance. These innovative products, showcased at, are ideal for use in several key applications and provide a cross-section of Vishay's very broad product portfolio.

The Super 12 products for 2010 are:

  • 597D and T97 Multi-Anode Tantalum Capacitors -- For +28-V applications, the industrial-grade 597D and Hi-Rel COTS T97D series are the industry's first 75-V-rated tantalum capacitors. The devices offer the industry's highest capacitance-voltage of 1500 microfarads at 4 V to 15 microfarads at 75 V to save PCB space, while ultra-low ESR down to 15 milliohms improves design efficiency.
  • MKP 1848 Polypropylene Film Capacitors -- For DC applications, the MKP 1848 capacitors feature a rated capacitance of 1 to 400 microfarads with 2 or 4 pins for PCB mounting (MKP 1848), and a rated capacitance of 60 to 400 microfarads with a bus bar for direct IGBT mounting (MKP 1848 PCP).
  • IHLP®-6767 Power Inductors -- The IHLP®-6767 devices are the highest-rated-current SMD power inductors available. Featuring low profiles of 4.0 and 7.0 mm, the devices offer currents up to 100 A, inductance values to 100 microhenries, and excellent temperature stability.
  • WSMS and WSBS High-Power Shunt Resistors -- The WSMS power meter shunts and WSBS automotive battery shunts provide extremely low resistance values of 50 to 500 micro-ohms; 3-W power capability in the 2908, 3124, and 5515 sizes; and 36-W power capability in the 8518 size. The devices' all-welded construction allows operation with continuous currents greater than 400 A.
  • LPS Planar Thick Film Resistors -- The LPS series offers high power dissipation up to 800 W in a compact 57-mm by 60-mm profile, with a low weight of 83 g. The devices offer high dielectric strength up to 12 kV RMS and a wide resistance range from 0.3 ohms to 900 kilohms.
  • Non-Magnetic MLCCs -- Manufactured with non-magnetic materials, these MLCCs incorporate multiple assembly methods, including conductive epoxy and IR reflow assembly. The devices are available in a wide variety of sizes, voltage ratings, and capacitance values, and feature a noble metal technology and wet build process for high reliability.
  • TrenchFET® Gen III P-Channel MOSFETs -- This newest generation of p-channel silicon technology enables devices with industry-best on-resistance specifications, such as 1.9 milliohms in the PowerPAK® SO-8. With rDS(on) as low as half the level of the next best devices on the market, the TrenchFET Gen III p-channel power MOSFETs provide lower conduction losses for higher efficiency and longer time between charges for battery-operated applications. A full range of package options, including the 1.6-mm by 1.6-mm PowerPAK SC-75, is available.
  • 20-A 20WT04FN Gen 5.0 Schottky Diode -- The 20WT04FN is the industry's first 20-A, 40-V diode in the D-PAK. The device features an operating temperature to + 175 deg. C, very low maximum forward voltage drop of 0.530 V @ 20 A and + 125 deg. C, and extremely low maximum reverse leakage of 7 mA @ 45 V at + 125 deg. C.
  • MSS1P2U and MSS1P3U eSMP™ SMD Schottky Barrier Rectifiers -- The MSS1P2U and MSS1P3U MicroSMP rectifiers offer high-current density with ultra-low forward voltage drop of 0.35 V at 0.4 V and low typical profiles of 0.68 mm.
  • VO3120 and VO3150A IGBT/MOSFET Drivers -- The 2.5-A and 0.5-A drivers offer the widest supply voltage range from 15 V to 32 V, and a wide operating temperature range from - 40 to + 110 deg. C.
  • SiC769 DrMOS 6x6 -- The SiC769 integrated MOSFET and driver IC solution features the industry's best power density for mainstream multi-phase Vcore applications. The new device is fully compliant with the DrMOS specification for voltage regulators (VRs) in high-power CPU-based systems, and enables operating frequencies up to 1 MHz.
  • Super Junction FET Gen 9 Power MOSFETs -- Vishay's 22-A, 600-V Super Junction FET™ MOSFETs offer on-resistance as low as 0.19 ohms (max) and an improved on-resistance times gate charge figure of merit (FOM).
