Resistors, diodes address key design challenges

Resistors, capacitors and diodes to help design engineers optimise their end products and address key design challenges such as scale, performance and cost have been added to the Farnell element14 portfolio.   They represent the Super 12 range which is released annually by Vishay and consists of six semiconductors and six passive components with advanced technology capabilities.


The T59 Series vPolyTan Polymer Capacitor has patented MAP packaging providing a 25% improvement in volumetric efficiency and delivering the industry’s highest capacitance density. In addition the range provides low ESR, and L-terminations which reduce equivalent series inductance (ESL) by 33% whilst improving the electrical and mechanical connection to the PCB.

The range has been developed for use in bulk energy storage in solid-state drives and filtering and voltage holdup for power conversion applications.

The IHLE-5A seriesare high current inductors that have an e-field shield to reduce noise in DC/DC convertors and provide 20 dB electric field reduction at 1cm - for use in DC/DC convertor circuits near noise sensitive components, automotive control circuitry and computer and other high current, noisy power supplies.

The VCNL4035X01 Optical Sensor is an integrated proximity and ambient light sensor for gesture applications’ all-in-one’ - for use in displays or other applications requiring gesture recognition.

Other products in the Vishay Super 12 range include the SQJQ480E TrenchFET Gen IV MOSFET for use in Automotive and Transportation and intralogistics applications, the SiRA20DP TrenchFET Gen IV MOSFET for application in OR-ing, battery management and load switching, synchronous rectification and synchronous buck and the WSLF2512, a 6W power metal Strip resistor with low resistance and low TCR for use in current sensing, voltage division and pulse applications in power management.

The VTVS5VOASMF to VTVS63GSMF is a 400W transient voltage suppressor (TVS) diados in SMF package for use in line transient voltage protection in space constrained electronics such as laptops, notebooks, tablet and external hard drives.

Also released were the SiC462 synchronous microBUCK regulator, the MKP1847H AC filtering film capacitor, 10A to 30A FRED Pt ultrafast rectifiers, IHXL very high current inductors and DCRF (Direct water-cooled power wirewound resistor)
