Vishay Intertechnology's VJ Nonmagnetic Surface-Mount MLCCs Honored With CEM 2011 Editors' Choice Award

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Feb 29, 2012) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that the company's VJ series of nonmagnetic surface-mount multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) has received a China Electronic Market (CEM) magazine 2011 Editors' Choice Award in the category of "The Most Competitive Capacitor Product in China."

Winners of the CEM 2011 Editors' Choice Awards were chosen based on their sales performance in the Chinese market and technological innovation. Vishay's VJ nonmagnetic series was selected because of its demonstrated success in the capacitors category.

Electronic components used in MRI equipment or nearby require nonmagnetic components that do not interfere with magnetic fields. To meet this need, Vishay's nonmagnetic series MLCCs are manufactured with nonmagnetic materials and are 100% safety-screened for magnetic properties before final packaging. The devices are available with C0G (NPO) and X7R/X5R dielectrics, each with a wide range of case sizes, voltage ratings, and capacitance values.

Vishay's nonmagnetic series devices feature a wet build process and a reliable Noble Metal Electrode (NME) system. The nonmagnetic capacitors can be assembled with epoxy bonding or in an SMT process using IR reflow. Proven to have less interference than standard capacitors, which contain magnetic materials, the nonmagnetic series devices are optimized for filter circuits in MRI equipment, implantable medical devices, ferromagnetic-sensitive instrumentation, electronic test systems, and high-end audio amplifiers.

The CEM 2011 Editors' Choice Award winners were announced in the January 2012 issue of the magazine.

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., a Fortune 1,000 Company listed on the NYSE (VSH), is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, MOSFETs, and infrared optoelectronics) and passive electronic components (resistors, inductors, and capacitors). These components are used in virtually all types of electronic devices and equipment, in the industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, power supplies, and medical markets. Vishay's product innovations, successful acquisition strategy, and "one-stop shop" service have made it a global industry leader. Vishay can be found on the Internet at www.vishay.com.
