Vishay германия

О бренде

Компания Vishay Intertechnology была основана в 1962 году доктором Феликсом Зендманом, при финансовой поддержке Альфреда Сленера. Компания начала свою деятельность с производства резисторов и тензодатчиков. В 1985 году, став лидером по производству этих электронных компонентов, компания начала серию стратегических поглощений, чтобы увеличить ассортимент электронных компонентов. Сегодня Vishay Intertechnology является одним из крупнейших в мире производителей дискретных полупроводников и пассивных электронных компонентов.

На сегодня компании Vishay принадлежат более двух десятков торговых марок, таких как: Dale, Sprague, Siliconix, Vitramon, Sfernice, Draloric, General Semiconductor, BC components, Esta, Telefunken, Tansitor. Последним приобретением является линейка танталовых конденсаторов от американской компании Kemet.

Компоненты Vishay Intertechnology используются практически во всех типах электронных устройств и оборудования: в промышленности; компьютерной, автомобильной и бытовой электронике; телекоммуникационной, военной, аэрокосмической технике; источниках питания и медицинского оборудования. Компания включает в себя производственные мощности в Китае и четырех других азиатских странах, Израиле, Европе, Северной и Южной Америках, а также офисы продаж по всему миру.

Осенью 2006 года состоялась покупка компанией Vishay заводов International Rectifier по производству стандартных диодов и транзисторов. В последние годы Vishay заняла ведущие позиции в производстве низковольтных силовых полевых транзисторов, выпрямительных диодов, диодов в стеклянных корпусах, инфракрасных компонентов, проволочных и силовых резисторов, пленочных резисторов, резистивных датчиков тока, танталовых конденсаторов с жидким электролитом и датчиков напряжения.

Продукция Vishay может практически полностью покрыть потребность в дискретных и пассивных компонентах из перечней закупки большинства производителей электроники. Линейка поставок на настоящий момент охватывает спектр от специализированных изделий до компонентов широкого применения — резисторы (включая уникальные сверхпрецизионные резисторы, изготовленные по технологии «BULK Metal Foil»), конденсаторы, от простейших до сверхмощных высокочастотных, индуктивности, датчики напряжения, измерительные элементы для весов, диоды, стабилитроны, транзисторы, микросхемы управления питанием, аналоговые ключи и мультиплексоры, светодиоды, инфракрасные излучатели и приемники, компоненты, поддерживающие стандарт IRDA.

SILICONIX

1962: Siliconix is founded

The same year that Vishay is founded and opens for
business in Malvern, Pennsylvania, Siliconix is founded and
opens for business in Sunnyvale, California. The founders
are Frances and Bill Hugle, research scientists at a
Westinghouse semiconductor facility. The Electronic
Engineering Company of California and the Baldwin Piano
Company (one of the first companies to license Western
Electric’s transistor technology) are the initial
investors. The first products manufactured by Siliconix are
junction field-effect transistors (JFETs), devices used to
switch and sense analog signals.

1963: Siliconix introduces its first integrated circuit
(IC) product

1967: Siliconix introduces analog switches

Siliconix is the first company to produce and market
analog switches, components that behave like a relay, but
have no moving parts. The switching element is normally a
MOSFET. Today, applications for analog switches include
USB, audio, medical and healthcare, and portable
meters.

1968: Siliconix introduces multiplexers

Siliconix is the first company to produce and market
analog multiplexers. These components convert multiple
inputs to a single output. They make it possible for
several signals to share one device or resource. Today,
applications include medical and healthcare,
instrumentation, and automatic test equipment (ATE).

1969: Siliconix moves to its present location in Santa
Clara, California

The current facility is located just off Highway 101 in
the heart of Silicon Valley. Today, neighbors include
Intel, Nvidia, Yahoo, McAfee, and Cisco.

1975: Siliconix introduces the first commercially
viable power MOSFET

Metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors
(MOSFETs) function as solid-state switches to control
power. As an example of usage in current end products, they
turn off specific functions of notebook computers and
mobile phones when these functions are not in use, thereby
extending battery life. They also help convert power into
levels required by other components. Today, Vishay
Intertechnology offers low- and high-voltage Vishay
Siliconix TrenchFET and planar MOSFETs in
innovative package formats to switch and manage power very
efficiently. Vishay Siliconix MOSFET innovations have
included the first power MOSFETs offered in small-outline,
surface-mount packages (LITTLE FOOT), new
package options for better thermal performance
(PowerPAK) and smaller footprints
(ChipFET, MICRO FOOT). Recent
innovations include PolarPAK, which uses
double-sided cooling to create a more efficient, faster
switching MOSFET; the PowerPAIR package, which combines a
low-side and high-side MOSFET in one compact device; the
SkyFET, which combines a MOSFET and Schottky
diode; and TrenchFET Gen III p-channel technology, which
packs a billion transistor cells into each square inch of
silicon.

1982: Siliconix introduces the industry’s first power
integrated circuits

Power integrated circuits (ICs) combine the functions of
multiple semiconductors and passive components on a single
chip. Today, Vishay Siliconix IC products are focused on
analog signal switching and routing, power conversion, and
power management. They are used in end products such as
tablet, netbook, notebook, and desktop computers; mobile
phones; and fixed telecommunications systems.

1991: Siliconix introduces LITTLE FOOT

LITTLE FOOT, a trade name for power MOSFETs in
small-outline packages, saves space in portable designs
compared to through-hole MOSFETs.

1993: Siliconix introduces
industry-first power MOSFETs based on Trench
technology

Trench technology allows a smaller area of silicon to
efficiently handle a larger amount of current. A patent is
subsequently awarded in 1996. The first
TrenchFET MOSFETs had 8 million transistor
cells per square inch. Each new generation of these
components has raised the density level, which is currently
a billion cells per square inch.

1998: Vishay acquires Semiconductor Business Group of
TEMIC

This acquisition of Telefunken (Germany) and an 80.4%
interest in Siliconix (U.S.) gives Vishay a significant
presence in the discrete semiconductor market. It adds new
products to the Vishay portfolio, including MOSFETs,
diodes, optoelectronic components, and power and analog
switching integrated circuits.

2005: Vishay acquires remaining 19.6% interest in
Siliconix
