Vishay showcasing power management solutions at APEC

At the Applied Power Electronics Conference & Exposition (APEC 2023) in Orlando, Florida (19-23 March), discrete semiconductor and passive electronic component maker Vishay Intertechnology Inc of Malvern, PA, USA is showcasing its portfolio of power management solutions addressing the latest trends in power electronics — from energy harvesting, electric vehicle (EV) powertrains, and mass commercialization to efficient and effective power electronics for power tools and switching regulators that shorten the iterative design cycle.

In booth 332, Vishay experts are available to discuss the firm’s range of passive and semiconductor solutions for these applications, including the development of 600V and 1200V planar silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET technology; power inductors that enable high efficiency in gallium nitride (GaN) DC/DC converters; and integrated power module solutions combining high-efficiency fast body diode MOSFETs and SiC, FRED Pt, and MOAT diode technologies to enable higher power density than discrete solutions.

Vishay is also giving product-focused demonstrations highlighting microBUCK and microBRICK switching regulators; IHLE series high-current inductors; IHPT haptic actuators; MELF and CRCW-HP/RCS thick-film chip resistors; RCP, PHP, and PCAN thick- and thin-film resistors; AEC-Q200-qualified CDMM thick-film dividers; and the THJP ThermaWick Thermal Jumper.

Application-focused demonstrations include:

  • a high-voltage intelligent battery shunt for 400V and 800V batteries;
  • a six-phase DC/DC converter for mild hybrid vehicles with 48V boardnets that provides power to 12V loads up to 3kW with high efficiency to 97%;
  • a semiconductor-based, re-settable eFuse for electric vehicles with 800V batteries.

Additional Vishay passive components on display at APEC include integrated transformers; wirewound resistors; PTC and NTC thermistors; LPS, LTO, DTO, and D2TO power thick-film resistors; wireless charging coils; ENYCAP electrical double-layer storage capacitors; and ceramic and power electronic capacitors (PEC). Highlighted Vishay semiconductor solutions consist of 2A to 7A TMBS, 2A to 4A standard, and 1A to 5A FRED Pt ultrafast rectifiers in Vishay’s first compact, low-profile Power DFN series package: the industry-first DFN3820A.

Also at APEC, on 22 March (12-12:30pm in Theater 1), marketing development manager Jorge Lugo is presenting an Exhibitor Seminar ‘Optimizing Your Battery Management System’.
