VISHAY IN THE WORLD

We're doing big
things in the world.
Come help us!

Looking for a way to make a big difference in the world? Join us! Since 1962, we have been innovating and producing the bedrock technology that empowers innovation in everything from aerospace to telecommunications to medical devices to energy production. Anywhere reliability and quality is a must for electronic componentry, Vishay is the go-to, worldwide. Here are a few examples of how we impact the world every day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Life-improving medical intervention, thanks to Vishay.
Parkinson's is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects a person's movement. Even enjoying a morning coffee can be a challenge due to uncontrollable tremors. Millions of people live with Parkinson's and there is no known cure, but many symptoms can be controlled—usually through often costly medication that must be taken for the rest of a person's life. But, this no longer has to be the case thanks to breakthrough medical technology helping to give people greater control of their body movement through electronic continuous stimulation to the brain. Vishay's TM3 and TM8 chip capacitors are providing improved performance and reliability in just such technologies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vishay resistors rescue Ferris wheel at state fair.
The Wonderfair Wheel is North America's largest travelling Ferris wheel—it stands 15 stories high and has 36 gondolas—and it relies on large braking resistors for smooth deceleration and ride safety. In August 2017, it was set up in advance of the Wisconsin State Fair, but the pre-event safety inspection found that the existing resistors were failing and needed to be replaced...immediately. Vishay Milwaukee had the resistors in stock and delivered the eight needed, as well as two extras, on the same day. The Vishay RBSF1500 1.5kW resistors performed perfectly—and fairgoers were able to enjoy the Ferris wheel, including many Vishay staff and their families.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feeling great in the morning: safer, better sleep.
Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening disorder affecting millions of people. It causes a person to pause breathing, or experience periods of shallow breathing, while they are asleep. Many people rely on a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine to keep their airways open. But, what if a person's CPAP machine loses power while they sleep? What a CPAP machine needs is an absolutely reliable back-up power source and strong power-outage alarm to keep a person breathing while the alarm wakes them up.  Enter the Vishay 196 HVC series of hybrid energy storage capacitors. They are small in size, but have a high current capability that won't degrade from repeated charge/discharge cycles over the lifespan of a CPAP machine.
