MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Nov 21, 2012) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that it will be presenting at the 2012 West China Power Seminar on Nov. 24 at the Xi'an Empress Hotel. Held jointly with the China Power Supply Society (CPSS), the seminar will include four technical presentations by Vishay experts exploring capacitors, resistors, inductors, MOSFETs, power modules, and diodes in new energy, military, communications, industrial power, and other industries. They will be joined by a number of additional industry experts making presentations on a wide range of topics.
From 9:40 to 10:15 a.m., Vishay regional marketing manager Michael Huang will discuss how different types of capacitors offer different characteristics -- including long lifetime, high current, high voltage shock, and resistance to high temperatures -- to meet the requirements of various applications. He will explore Vishay's offering of capacitors for power and special power supply applications, such as power transmission, oil exploration, and new energy.
Vishay regional marketing manager Steven Lv will discuss the use of resistors and inductors in a variety of power supply applications from 10:15 to 10:50 a.m. He will highlight the importance of selecting the right component, with a focus on the characteristics and applications of Vishay's resistor and inductor offering.
Tom Xu, Vishay assistant product application manager, will present on power MOSFETs and integrated DrMOS solutions for power supplies in new energy, military, and communication applications from 2:10 to 2:45 p.m. He will explore cutting-edge TrenchFET® Gen IV low-voltage power MOSFETs and the latest high-voltage MOSFET technologies, such as Super Junction technology.
From 2:45 to 3:20 p.m., Vishay senior engineer Tony Wei will discuss the use of diodes and power modules in new energy and industrial applications. He will focus on the use of low-forward-voltage-drop TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky diodes as bypass diodes in solar junction boxes and in inverter power modules; FRED® Pt ultra-fast diodes; and thyristors in solar inverter and industrial applications.
Additional industry experts featured at the 2012 West China Power Seminar will include:
- Fang Zhuo, Xi'an JiaoTong University; Head of the CPSS Power Quality Committee
- Qiaoliang Chen, R&D Director, Xian Longteng New Energy Technology
- Xiangdong Sun, Xi'an University of Technology
