Vishay's Top Executive to Present at J.P. Morgan Global Technology, Media and Telecom Conference

In a recent press release, Vishay Intertechnology (News - Alert), Inc., one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, MOSFETs, and infrared optoelectronics) and passive electronic components, announced that Dr. Lior Yahalomi, its executive vice president and chief financial officer, will present at the 39th Annual J.P. Morgan Global Technology (News - Alert), Media and Telecom Conference in Boston, MA on Wednesday, May 18th at 12:00 PM ET.

A live audio webcast will be accessible on the Vishay website at

A Fortune 1,000 Company listed on the NYSE (VSH), Vishay serves various top-notch companies in numerous industries like electronic devices and equipment, industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, power supplies, and medical markets.

The company recently announced the addition of the new W case (EIA 7361) for its popular low-ESR TR3 high-capacitance, high-voltage molded tantalum chip capacitor. Measuring 7.3 mm by 6.0 mm, with a height of 3.45 mm, the new case size allows for capacitance and voltage range expansion beyond the existing A through E case sizes.

Following Vishay’s recent release of 63 V and 75 V tantalum capacitors, the introduction of the low-ESR TR3 W case version underscores the company’s commitment to offering best-in-class ratings featuring robust designs with maximum voltage and the highest capacitance available in the industry. Vishay will be releasing W case size versions of all its molded tantalum capacitors in the coming months.By utilizing the W case capacitor, designers can reduce the component count in applications where they previously used multiple components in parallel to achieve large bulk capacitance for energy storage. This saves board space, reduces costs, and improves reliability in telecom base stations, data storage and high-end computing, industrial computers, automotive, and military applications, in addition to medical instrumentation, and more.

Samples and production quantities of the low-ESR TR3 molded tantalum capacitor in the W case size will be available in Q2 2011, with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders.
