Vishay Intertechnology’s Si7157DP P-Channel MOSFET Selected as Finalist for 2014 Elektra Awards

MALVERN, Pa. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 8, 2014 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that the Vishay Siliconix -20 V Si7157DP TrenchFET® p-channel Gen III power MOSFET has been named as a finalist for the 2014 Elektra European Electronics Industry Awards in the category of “Power System Product of the Year.” Designed to increase efficiency in mobile computing devices, the -20 V Si7157DP offers on-resistance of 0.0016 Ω and 0.0020 Ω at -10 V and -4.5 V ratings, respectively — the lowest ever for a p-channel MOSFET.

Presented by Electronics Weekly magazine, the Elektra Awards celebrate the achievements of individuals and companies across the European electronics industry. Selected by an independent panel of judges, award winners in 16 categories will have demonstrated best practices in key areas, including innovation, sales growth, and employee motivation. Finalists in the “Power System Product of the Year” category were chosen based on their application of new materials, semiconductor technologies, and packaging to power-efficient designs.

The industry-low on-resistance of the Si7157DP allows designers to achieve lower voltage drops and conduction losses in their circuits, enabling more efficient use of power and longer battery run times — especially in peak load conditions — while its compact 6.15 mm by 5.15 mm PowerPAK® SO-8 package footprint area saves valuable PCB space. The device’s lower voltage drop at peak currents also provides a larger voltage margin over the UVLO (undervoltage lockout) level, helping prevent undesired undervoltage lockout conditions with the load.

Award winners will be announced at the Elektra Awards Dinner, taking place Nov. 26 at the Lancaster London in England.
