MALVERN, Pennsylvania — December 6, 2021 — A few days ago, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE stock code: VSH) announced that the company’s SiC45x series of microBUCK® synchronous step-down regulators won the AspenCore 2021 first Asian Golden Selection Award (EE Awards) Asia) Power IC Product Award. This regulator adopts a small PowerPAK® 5 mm x 7 mm package and is commended for its rated output current of up to 40 A, which is superior to the previous generation of regulators in power density and transient response.
The Asian Golden Selection Award, awarded by AspenCore, an outstanding media group in the global Electronic technology field, aims to recognize products, companies and individuals that have contributed to the innovation and development of the Asian electronics industry. The winners are selected by a jury composed of AspenCore global senior industry analysts, as well as readers and users online voting. This year, Vishay’s SiC45x series devices are leading the way in the power IC product evaluation.
The small package of SiC45x device contains high-performance n-channel trench MOSFET and PWM controller to improve power density. The voltage stabilizer has a low quiescent current and a peak efficiency of 98%, which reduces power loss. This integrated device helps simplify the design of high-performance point-of-load (POL) converters and reduces the number of external components for loop compensation.
The SiC45x series regulators have rated currents of 15 A, 25 A, and 40 A, with an input voltage of 4.5 V to 20 V, and an internal compensation function within the entire VIN and VOUT operating voltage range. The device is highly configurable, has a wide input voltage range, and the output voltage is adjustable from 0.3 V to 12 V. Voltage stabilizers are versatile and suitable for a variety of applications, including POL converters used in cloud computing, enterprise servers and industrial computers, as well as network, telecommunications, and storage systems.
On November 16, the award ceremony was held at the Humble House Le Méridien Taipei. Augustine Chang, Vishay Asia MOSFET business marketing director, accepted the award on behalf of Vishay.
