Vishay Intertechnology's VSLY5850 IR Emitter, IHLP-1212BZ-11 Inductor, WSLP3921/5931 Power Metal Strip® Resistors, and RMKHT Thin Film Chip Resistors and Resistor Networks Selected for Electronic Design's Annual 'Top 101 Components'

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2011) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that the company's VSLY5850 infrared (IR) emitter, IHLP-1212BZ-11 inductor, WSLP3921/5931 Power Metal Strip® resistors, and RMKHT thin film chip resistors and resistor networks have been selected for Electronic Design's "Top 101 Components." The annual list compiles the 101 most popular components from the previous year among readers of the magazine's Products of the Week newsletter.

#17 -- VSLY5850 IR Emitter
Featuring a unique surface emitter technology and parabolic lens for a narrow 3° angle of half intensity, the VSLY5850 delivers extremely high radiant intensity of 600 mW/sr at a 100 mA drive current, high optical output power to 55 mW, and fast 10 ns switching times. The device is optimized for IR illumination in CMOS cameras, fire alarm systems, and smoke detectors as well as high-modulation-frequency applications for long-range data transmission.

#45 -- WSLP3921 and WSLP5931 Power Metal Strip®Resistors
The surface-mount WSLP3921 and WSLP5931 Power Metal Strip resistors in the 3921 and 5931 case sizes offer high power ratings from 5 W to 10 W with extremely low resistance values down to 0.0003 ohms. The resistors incorporate a solid metal nickel-chrome or manganese-copper alloy resistive element with a TCR below 20 ppm/°C. This results in a high-power resistor with an operating temperature range of - 65 °C to + 170 °C.
