Vishay Intertechnology's LPS 1100 Thick Film Power Resistor Honored With 2013 
EE Times and EDN ACE Award 
MALVERN, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/08/13 --  Vishay Intertechnology,
Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that the company's Vishay Sfernice
LPS 1100 thick film power resistor has received a UBM Tech 2013 EE
Times and EDN Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Award
(http://ubm-ace.com/winners.php) in the Ultimate Products of the
Year: Passives, Interconnects, and Electromechanical category.  
The EE Times and EDN ACE Awards celebrate the creators of technology
who demonstrate leadership and innovation in the global electronics
industry. The awards are judged by a panel of industry experts,
composed of the leading voices of academia and the industry. The
Ultimate Products of the Year -- awarded to the most significant
products introduced in the last 12 months in 11 categories -- are
determined by large-scale peer review. Winners were announced at the
April 23 EE Times EDN ACE Awards ceremony in San Jose, Calif. 
The ACE award in the Ultimate Products of the Year: Passives,
Interconnects, and Electromechanical category was presented by Paul
Miller, CEO, UBM Tech, and accepted on behalf of Vishay by Dean
Rambo, Vishay Sfernice/Spectrol regional marketing manager, Americas.
In introducing the award category, Patrick Mannion, brand director
for EDN, Test & Measurement World, and Planet Analog, said of the LPS
1100, "Tonight's winner puts the spotlight on materials science and
its application in electronic engineering. It's the first in its
field that combines both performance and ease of use for the most
powerful new applications." 
The LPS 1100 is the industry's first resistor in the compact 57 mm by
60 mm package to offer a power rating of 1100 W at a heat sink
temperature of +25 degrees C. The LPS 1100 offers high-temperature
derating performance and a broad range of resistance values from 1
ohm to 1.3 kilohms. Designed for easy mounting to a heat sink, the
device's compact footprint, low 25 mm profile, and low weight of 79
grams save valuable space to help designers reduce the size of their
end products. 
With its high power capabilities and high dielectric strength to 12
kv RMS, the LPS 1100 is intended for power supply, inverter,
converter, HEV-EV battery mana
gement, and snubber, chopper,
pre-charge, discharge, and filtering resistor applications. Typical
end products include windmill turbines, X-ray and oncology tables,
trains, HVDC equipment, and large UPS drives.
