Vishay Intertechnology to Showcase Latest Technology Solutions at Techno-Frontier 2010 in Japan

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) -   Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) will be exhibiting its latest technology solutions at Power Supply Japan, a focused exhibition on power supply at Techno-Frontier 2010, being held at the Tokyo Big Sight July 21-23, 2010. On display in 3X-205, Vishay will feature its broad portfolio of industry-leading discrete semiconductors and passive electronic components. Attendees can learn how Vishay's leading solutions help designers to meet their specific requirements for saving space and reducing costs in a wide range of applications.

Products on display:

  • Chip antennas; PowerBridge™ rectifier series; PFC rectifiers; TrenchFET® Gen III p-channel MOSFETs; 100-V, 200-V, 600-V MOSFETs; new small-package PowerPAIR™ MOSFETs; MICRO FOOT® package MOSFETs; microBUCK™ integrated synchronous buck regulators; integrated DrMOS solutions; analog multiplexers.

New and key product highlights:

  • Enhanced 30-A to 45-A PowerBridge rectifier series
    • New space-saving, enhanced high-current-density PowerBridge(PB) rectifiers with a high case dielectric strength of 1500 V in the PowerBridge package, which features a body size of 30 mm x 20 mm with a height profile of 3.8 mm and offers more efficient performance than larger-sized bridge products.
    • Low thermal resistance reduces heat generation and the need for heat sinks compared to larger-size bridge products with similar power ratings.
    • The new devices offer package, lead pitch, and pin layouts that are compatible with the conventional GSIB-5S package. This saves time by eliminating the need to change the PCB layout and heat sink when system power is increased.
    • A +275 deg. C, 10-second solder dipping process enables high reliability in wave soldering or manual soldering.
  • New 600-V, 8-A PFC rectifier series
    • The new 600-V, 8-A devices feature an ultra-low typical voltage drop of 1 V at rated current, fast recovery times as low as 16 ns, typical leakage current at 125 deg. C down to 30 microamps, and recovery charge down to 62 nC.
    • Three versions are available for DCM/CRM, CRM, and CCM SMPS PFC. Each is available in TO-220AC and TO-220FPAC packages with a 175 deg. C maximum junction temperature rating.
