MALVERN, PA, Dec 03, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that three
of its products were featured in EDN magazine's prestigious list of
Hot 100 Products for 2012, which highlights the electronics
industry's most significant products of the year based on innovation,
significance, usefulness, and popularity. Vishay's VLMx1500-GS08
series of ultra-bright LEDs and VSMY7852X01 and VSMY7850X01 infrared
(IR) emitters were included in the Optoelectronics and Lighting
Control category, while the Vishay Draloric VSGR power resistor was
featured in the Components category.
Optoelectronics and Lighting - VLMx1500-GS08
series of super red, soft orange, yellow, yellow green, blue, and
white ultra-bright LEDs feature a tiny surface-mount 0402 ChipLED
package. Measuring just 1.0 mm x 0.6 mm with an ultra-thin 0.36 mm
profile, the VLMx1500-GS08 series provides exceptional brightness
with a luminous intensity to 180 mcd. The products are designed for
indicator and backlighting for audio and video equipment, office
equipment, LCDs, switches, symbols, interior and exterior lighting,
and indoor and outdoor message boards.

Components - VSGR
Vishay Draloric's VSGR is a stainless steel power
resistor with high power capability up to 20 kW (higher values on
demand) at 40 degrees C and a high operating temperature range of -
25 degrees C to + 250 degrees C for applications in extreme
environments. The VSGR provides IP00 to IP23 protection and is
designed as a converter and brake resistor in windmill, solar, diesel
generator, turbine, and railway applications. The device features a
resistance range from 0.1 to 75 ohms (with other values available on
request), resistance tolerance of 5 % and 10 %, and a temperature
coefficient (TCR) of 250 ppm/K.
