|SIP32101DB Bi-Directional Battery Switch - Vishay Siliconix's SiP32101 combines industry-low on-resistance and ultra-low quiescent current in a compact, 12-bump WCSP package. In smart phones, tablets, digital cameras, portable healthcare meters, data storage systems, and more, PCB space is at a premium.
|Si8824EDB N-Ch Chipscale MOSFET - The on-resistance of the Vishay Siliconix Si8824EDB is up to 25% lower than the closest competing 20 V MOSFET in an identical CSP package, and up to 65% lower than the closest competing 20 V device in the DFN 1 mm by 0.6 mm package. The MOSFET’s low on-resistance, threshold voltage, rating down to 1.2 V, and ±5 V VGS provide a combination of safety margin, gate drive design flexibility, and high performance for lithium ion battery-powered applications.
|Engineer's Toolbox - The Engineer's Toolbox highlights, by market application, some innovative components Vishay manufactures that help design engineers develop superior end products. We recognize that offering unique component solutions helps improve the performance of next-generation devices, overcome technical barriers, and create new markets.
|VSMP Series Resistors - Vishay Foil Resistors' VSMP series resistors have a full wraparound termination, which assures secure contact during the manufacturing process, as well as providing stability during multiple thermal cyclings. Precision trimmed resistors provide short run, quick delivery of Vishay bulk metal foil resistors.

About Vishay Foil Resistors
Vishay Foil Resistors is a division of Vishay Precision Group, producing the most precise and stable resistors available. Our portfolio comprises products in a variety of resistor configurations and packages to meet the needs of a wide range of applications: 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. Our foil resistors and current sensors are used in applications requiring a high degree of precision and stability, such as in medical testing equipment, high performance audio equipment, precision measuring instruments and aerospace and military applications.
Micro-Measurements is dedicated to the development, manufacture, and marketing of products for high-precision strain and stress measurement. It is our only business. For purposes of experimental stress analysis—whether preproduction prototype evaluation, field-service testing, failure analysis, or pure research—we offer a full complement of the sensors, instruments, equipment, and supplies necessary to obtain accurate, reliable strain and stress data.
Our products are used throughout the industrialized world—both in the practice of experimental stress analysis, and as the sensing elements in a wide variety of transducers including load cells for measuring physical variables other than strain (weight, force, torque, pressure, etc.). We are structured equally to serve the differing needs of the very small user, and those of large high-volume customer.
For stress analysis testing, we are the leading supplier of electrical resistance strain gages, strain gage accessories, and special resistive sensors and specialists in the development and manufacture of static and dynamic strain gage instrumentation. Additionally, as experts in the field of photoelasticity, we offer a wide range of equipment and materials for this visual, full-field stress measurement technique.
Micro-Measurements also produces strain gages and installation accessories that are specifically designed to meet the needs of load cell manufacturers. Our Transducer-Class® gages have the special features and operating characteristics required for the economical production of precision transducers.
