Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. today announced its technology lineup for the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC) 2015, taking place March 15-19 in Charlotte, North Carolina. In booth 501, the company will be highlighting its latest industry-leading power MOSFET, passive component, and diode technologies for a wide range of applications.
Vishay Siliconix power MOSFETs on display at APEC 2015 will include the 40 V TrenchFET® SQJQ402E, the industry’s first AEC-Q101-qualified MOSFET to feature the 8 mm by 8 mm by 1.8 mm PowerPAK® 8x8L package, and the first in an 8 mm by 8 mm package with J leads. To save PCB space in automotive applications, the device offers similar on-resistance and higher continuous current than MOSFETs in the D²PAK while reducing the footprint area and profile by 60 %. To save power, the SQJQ402E offers half the on-resistance, twice the current, and a 21 % smaller profile than devices in the DPAK, all with only a 12 % larger footprint.
Demonstrations from Vishay Siliconix will include a multi-stage power supply architecture illustrating how a broad selection of new MOSFET technologies — from the 600 V E Series to 30 V TrenchFET Gen IV devices — can provide total power conversion solutions from “plug to processor.”
Highlighted diodes from Vishay Semiconductors will include standard rectifiers with ESD capability in the low-profile SMPD (TO-263AC) package for automotive applications, as well as insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) power modules featuring Ultrafast Trench IGBTs and high-efficiency HEXFRED® and FRED Pt® diodes in EMIPAK packages for solar inverters and UPS. In addition, Vishay will be providing demonstrations of its new 600 V and 650 V Trench IGBT platform featuring Punch Through (PT) and Field Stop (FS) technologies. Designed to increase efficiency in motor drives, UPS, solar inverters, and welding machine inverters, the bare die devices offer low collector-to-emitter voltages and fast and soft turn-on and turn-off for low conduction and switching losses.
Vishay’s passive components on display will consist of a wide variety of the company’s latest capacitors, resistors, and inductors. Featured capacitors will include a new series of hybrid ENergY storage capacitors — ENYCAP™ — with low 2.5 mm profiles and industry-high energy density of 13 Ws/g. Offering designers exceptional flexibility and enhanced charge and discharge performance for energy harvesting and power line backup applications, the Vishay BCcomponents 196 HVC ENYCAP series is available with a wide variety of layouts, capacitance values, and voltage ratings. Also on display will be Vishay ESTA HDMKP and DCMKP capacitors for power electronics; Vishay Roederstein MKP1848C metallized polypropylene film capacitors for DC-link applications; and Vishay BCcomponents F339X1 interference suppression film capacitors.
Highlights from Vishay’s line of resistors will include the Vishay Draloric AC05..CS 5 W axial silicone-cemented fusible wirewound safety resistor for electric appliances and energy meters; Vishay Beyschlag MMA 0204 HV and MMB 0207 HV professional high-voltage thin film MELF resistors with high continuous operating voltage up to 1000 V for medical equipment; the Vishay Draloric VSGR stainless steel power resistor with high power capability up to 20 kW and a wide operating temperature range of -25 °C to +250 °C for windmill, solar, diesel generator, turbine, and railway applications; the Vishay Milwaukee EDGU/S edgewound power resistor; and Vishay Sfernice LPS and DTO25 thick film power resistors. Also on display will be the Vishay BCcomponents PTSCL03 mini leaded PTC sensing thermistor, which features a rugged design and a wide range of protection temperatures from +80 °C to +150 °C for motor drives and LED drivers in industrial and lighting applications.
Featured Vishay Dale inductors will include the IHLE-4040DC-5A automotive-grade low-profile, high-current inductor featuring an integrated e-shield, which provides up to 20 dB of electric field reduction at 1 cm (above the center of the inductor) when connected to ground. Vishay will be holding demonstrations of the device, allowing booth visitors to see how it lowers costs and saves space by significantly reducing high-frequency EMI noise without the need for external EMI shielding.
As the premier event in applied power electronics, APEC focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business. More information on the conference and exposition is available at http://www.apec-conf.org/.
