MALVERN, Pa. -- February 6, 2013

Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG) today announced that Integrated
Electronics Technology P. Ltd. (INTRON), an India-based manufacturer and
distributor of resistors, is distributing the complete Vishay Foil Resistors
brand (VFR) product portfolio throughout the country.

Serving the Indian electronics industry for the past 40 years, INTRON’s
mission is to provide precision resistor products for a wide range of
applications. By distributing VFR’s entire portfolio, INTRON is offering its
customers a variety of resistor configurations and package types to meet their
different needs: discrete resistors and resistor networks in surface mount and
through-hole (leaded) configurations, customized chip resistor networks,
precision trimming potentiometers, and discrete chips for use in hybrid
circuits.

VPG’s foil resistors are known worldwide for providing the highest level of
precision and stability in many forms and configurations. As such, their
applications are found in the most advanced equipment in the electronics
industry. In addition to making this technology readily available within the
Indian market, INTRON will provide expert applications assistance to design
engineers to help them improve the performance of end products with VFR Bulk
Metal^® Foil resistors.

“Design engineers in India will benefit from the guidance and expert
applications assistance that INTRON provides in addition to serving as a
reliable source for the full line of VFR foil resistors,” said VFR Senior
Director of Application Engineering Yuval Hernik. “Foil resistor customers can
also be confident, in working with INTRON, of avoiding the counterfeit devices
that have made their appearance on the market and which have caused confusion
about the differences between actual and published specifications. The
consequences of substituting fake resistors for real Bulk Metal Foil resistors
can be very grave indeed. That’s why it’s more important than ever to know
that the foil resistors you’re using are in fact the high-precision devices
you believe them to be.

“VFR is pleased to have this opportunity to work with INTRON and anticipates a
long and close relationship with mutual success for both companies in India,”
Hernik added. “Additionally, VFR sees this arrangement as a solid plus for
high-end electronics manufacturers in India because they will now have genuine
high-precision resistor products more immediately available for prototype
development, as well as production, with all the advantages and efficiency of
in-country procurement."

VFR's ultra-precision Bulk Metal^® Foil resistor products provide extremely
low temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) of 0.05 ppm/°C typical (0 °C
to + 60 °C); exceptional long-term stability to 0.0025 % at 70 °C and 2000 h
at rated power; and electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection to at least 25
kV. These characteristics allow designers to reduce circuit errors
significantly and greatly improve overall performance in applications
requiring a high degree of precision and stability, such as medical testing
equipment, semiconductor equipment, precision measuring instruments,
aerospace, and military applications.
