A component solutions provider for connectivity, mobility, and sustainability, Vishay will highlight industry-leading innovations — including passive components, diodes, power MOSFETs, and optoelectronics — that provide increased efficiency and reliability for a wide range of applications.

To address the increasing demands associated with automotive designs, specifically in powertrain and hybrid vehicle applications, Vishay Siliconix will showcase its low-profile, high-power-density AEC-Q101-qualified SQ Series MOSFETs in a wide range of packages. Optimized for automotive excellence, SQ Series devices are produced using a special process flow in fabrication and assembly to reduce defects. Featuring low on-resistance n- and p-channel TrenchFET® technologies, the MOSFETs are rated for a maximum junction temperature of +175 °C and offer a rugged silicon design. Also featured will be Vishay Siliconix DrMOS solutions and analog switches.

For automotive and solar inverter applications, Vishay will be featuring diodes in a variety of low-profile packages, including 45 V to 120 V TMBS® Trench MOS Barrier Schottky rectifiers in the SMPA (DO-221BC) and SMPD (TO-263AC) packages, and FRED Pt® ultrafast recovery rectifiers in the SlimSMA (DO-221AC) and SMF (DO-219AB) packages. In addition, power modules in the EMIPAK-2B package featuring solderless pressfit technology will be on display.

Vishay will also highlight optoelectronics products for MRI machines, computer servers, and alternative energy and industrial applications. Devices on display will consist of 5 MBd high-speed optocouplers, matched infrared emitters and phototransistors, high-brightness 0603 ChipLEDs, 2.5 A IGBT and MOSFET drivers, and solid-state relays.

Passive components from Vishay will consist of a wide variety of the company’s latest capacitors, resistors, and inductors. Highlighted resistors will include Vishay Dale Power Metal Strip® resistors with high-temperature capabilities to +275 °C and high-current Power Metal Strip shunts for power meter and battery management applications; AEC-Q200-qualified Vishay Draloric/Beyschlag MELF resistors; Vishay BCcomponents high-voltage metal glaze leaded resistors; and Vishay MCB's water-cooled wirewound resistor and thick film devices with power to 750 W. Also highlighted will be high-precision thin film chip resistors and Vishay Dale Thin Film PAT resistors for high-temperature applications.

Featured capacitors will include Vishay ESTA power electronic capacitors, as well as Vishay Roederstein polypropylene film capacitors for DC-link applications and snubber devices for solar and wind inverters. Vishay Dale will be showcasing automotive-grade low-profile, high-current IHLP® inductors, and high-temperature through-hole inductors for desktops and servers.

Vishay will also be offering three demonstrations in its booth at Techno-Frontier 2014. Vishay Dale will be demonstrating its free online IHLP inductor loss calculator tool (www.vishay.com/inductors/calculator/calculator/), in addition to the thermal EMF performance of its power shunt resistors. Vishay Semiconductors will be providing a demonstration of its gesture control sensor board, which consists of the VCNL4020 proximity sensor and two VSMF2890RGX01 infrared emitters.

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
