Vishay (VSH) Boosts Passive Component Portfolio With New Product

Read MoreHide Full Article

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (VSH - Free Report) has expanded its passive component portfolio by rolling out a leadless NTC thermistor die — NTCC201E4.

The new device offers a wide temperature range from -55 °C to +175 °C, and resistance from 4.7 kΩ to 20 kΩ at +25 °C.

Further, it comes with silver metallization, which supports aluminum wire bonding, and enables versatile mounting.

We note that the latest move makes Vishay well-poised to gain strong traction among automotive and alternative energy applications as NTCC201E4 aids in temperature sensing, control and compensation.

Growth Opportunities

With the latest move, Vishay remains well-positioned to capitalize on the growing proliferation of applications related to passive electronic-component devices and the increasing demand for sophisticated electronic-component designs.

Its strong thermistor offerings will likely benefit from the growing adoption of building and home automation systems, the increasing use of temperature sensors in the automotive industry, and the rising applications of portable and advanced healthcare equipment across the world.

Per a report by Data Bridge Market Research, the global thermistor market is expected to witness a CAGR of 4.4% between 2022 and 2029 and hit $114.9 billion by 2029.

Per a report by Mordor Intelligence, the worldwide thermistor temperature sensor market is anticipated to see a CAGR of 7.5% between 2021 and 2026.

Expansion of Suite of Products

The latest launch bodes well for Vishay’s strong efforts toward enriching its product menu.

Apart from the latest move, Vishay recently unveiled a series of surface-mount TRANSZORB bidirectional transient voltage suppressors for automotive, industrial and telecom applications.

VSH released a high-precision thin-film wraparound chip resistor named the Vishay Sfernice PEP. The chip resistor offers higher power ratings in smaller case sizes for miniaturization and minimizes the mechanical stress on solder joints.

Vishay introduced an AEC-Q200-qualified charging resistor, featuring wire-wound technology in standard package size.

VSH also unveiled the latest device in its fourth-generation 600 V E Series power MOSFETs, providing high efficiency for telecom, server and data center power-supply applications.

We believe that these endeavors will continue to shape its growth trajectory and sustain momentum in various end markets that it serves.
