Vishay – VCNL4020X01: Robust, AEC-Q101-Qualified Proximity and Ambient Light Sensor


Sometimes you need a sensor that can hold its own in harsher environments. Capable of handling operating temperatures from -40˚C to +105˚C, the VCNL4020X01 provides a robust solution for a variety of applications — and does it with style. The VCNL4020X01 simplifies designs by combining an IR emitter, a photo-pin-diode for proximity, an ambient light detector, a signal processing IC, and a 16-bit […]

WSLP Series: Very High Power, Current Sense, Power Metal Strip® Resistors


The small size of the WSLP Series resistors allows it to replace larger current sensing resistors, saving on the circuit board that in turn will create smaller and lighter products for the consumer. Manufactured using proprietary techniques that result in extremely high power and low resistance values, featuring all-welded construction with a solid metal nickel-chrome […]

150V N-Channel TrenchFET® Power MOSFET with ThunderFET® Technology Offers On-Resistance Down to 18mΩ


The new N-channel TrenchFET power MOSFET in a thermally enhanced PowerPAK® SO-8 package extends the company’s ThunderFET technology to 150V. The Vishay Siliconix SiR872ADP offers low on-resistance of 18m? at 10V and 23m? at 7.5V, while maintaining low gate charge, 31nC typical at 10V and 22.8nC typical at 7.5V. The device recently released is optimized […]
