Vishay Intertechnology's Si7655DN -20 V P-Channel MOSFET Wins EDN China 2013 Innovation Award

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2013) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that its Si7655DN -20 V p-channel Gen III power MOSFET has won an EDN China 2013 Innovation Award. Presented at an award ceremony on Nov. 12 in Shanghai, the Si7655DN received a Best Product Award in the Power Devices and Modules category.

The EDN China Innovation Awards were introduced in 2005 to recognize achievements in the design of ICs and related products in the Chinese market. This year, 144 products from 82 companies entered the competition in nine technology categories. EDN China's online readers voted to shortlist 73 products for nomination, with a group of technical experts and senior EDN editors selecting the final winners.

The Si7655DN is the industry's first -20 V p-channel MOSFET in a 3.3 mm by 3.3 mm package to offer on-resistance of just 4.8 milliohms maximum at a 4.5 V gate drive. It is also the first device to be released in a new version of the Vishay Siliconix PowerPAK® 1212 package, which enables lower-RDS(on) devices while providing a 28 % slimmer nominal profile of 0.75 mm and maintaining the same PCB land pattern.

Utilizing the new PowerPAK 1212 package version and Vishay Siliconix's industry-leading p-channel TrenchFET® Gen III technology, the Si7655DN provides industry-low maximum on-resistance of 3.6 milliohms (-10 V), 4.8 milliohms (-4.5 V), and 8.5 milliohms (-2.5 V). These specifications represent an improvement of 17 % or better over the next best competing -20 V devices. The low on-resistance of the Si7655DN allows designers to achieve lower voltage drops in their circuits and promote more efficient use of power and longer battery run times while its compact package helps to save valuable space.
