Vishay powers up for APEC 2023
Vishay Intertechnology will be showcasing its broad portfolio of power solutions at the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC) 2023 in Orlando, Florida (March 19-23).
They address the latest trends in power electronics — from energy harvesting, electric vehicle (EV) powertrains, and mass commercialisation to efficient and effective power electronics for power tools and switching regulators that shorten the iterative design cycle.
In booth 332, Vishay experts will be available to discuss the company's extensive offering of passive and semiconductor solutions for these next-generation applications, including the development of 600 V and 1200 V planar 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 will also be offering a variety of 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 will also include:
- A high voltage intelligent battery shunt for 400 V and 800 V batteries
- A six-phase DC/DC converter for mild hybrid vehicles with 48 V boardnets that provides power to 12 V loads up to 3 kW with high efficiency to 97 %
- A semiconductor-based, resettable eFuse for electric vehicles with 800 V batteries
Additional Vishay passive components on display at APEC 2023 will 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 will consist of 2 A to 7 A TMBS, 2 A to 4 A standard, and 1 A to 5 A FRED Pt ultrafast rectifiers in Vishay's first compact, low profile Power DFN series package: the industry-first DFN3820A.
Jorge Lugo, Marketing Development Manager at Vishay, will also be presenting an Exhibitor Seminar "Optimising Your Battery Management System" on Wednesday, March 22, from 12 to 12:30 p.m.
