Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., a Fortune 1,000 Company listed on the NYSE (VSH), is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, MOSFETs, and infrared optoelectronics) and passive electronic components (resistors, inductors, and capacitors). These components are used in virtually all types of electronic devices and equipment, in the industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, power supplies, and medical markets. Vishay’s product innovations, successful acquisition strategy, and "one-stop shop" service have made it a global industry leader.
R&D programs throughout all company divisions generate a steady stream of new components to help designers create innovative end products — from lightweight tablet PCs and e-book devices to hybrid and fully electric vehicles to wind and solar power systems. Components less than five years old provide a significant percentage of Vishay’s total revenue. This percentage is expected to increase during the next several years.
Vishay Intertechnology has grown through acquisitions to include such top names as Dale, Sfernice, Draloric, Sprague, Vitramon, Siliconix, General Semiconductor, BCcomponents, and Beyschlag. Vishay's portfolio of brands represents an unmatched collection of discrete semiconductors and passive components. All of these brands and products are part of one global manufacturer: Vishay Intertechnology.
