Vishay Intertechnology to Demonstrate Latest Power MOSFET, Diode, IC, and Passive Component Technologies at APEC® 2011

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - March 3, 2011) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced its technology line-up for the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC®) 2011, taking place March 6-10 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Texas.

At APEC, Vishay will be highlighting its latest power MOSFET silicon and packaging technologies, including devices built on enhanced process flows for medical, automotive, and hi-rel applications. On display will be new power diode and power IC devices, such as new TMBS® rectifier, DrMOS power stage, and microBUCK™ buck converter solutions. Also featured will be Vishay's latest passive components, including resistors, inductors, capacitors, and power capacitors.

Vishay's engineering and sales staff will provide demonstrations of the industry-leading technologies. Highlights include a high-efficiency automotive daylighting demonstration; a demonstration of the low on-resistance and compact size of Vishay's Power MICRO FOOT® package when compared to the PowerPAK® 1212-8; and a demonstration of Vishay's SiC779 and SiC772 high-current, high-frequency power stages, which lower power losses and operating temperature.

As The Premier Event in Applied Power Electronics™, APEC focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business. More information on the conference and exposition is available at
