element14 adds 5 industry-firsts from Vishay Super 12 for applications in medical, CE and alternative energy

New series of P-channel MOSFETs, MEPIC and MELF resistors, and more, are available from element14 for electronics design and production

element14 has added several industry-first products to its portfolio of passives and semiconductors from Vishay Intertechnology, a world leader in discrete semiconductors and passive electronic components. The industry-firsts among the 2015 Super 12 include capacitors, resistors and MOSFETs and are suited for applications in the medical, consumer electronics, alternative energy, industrial, telecommunications, computing and automotive markets.


We offer a comprehensive portfolio from leading suppliers for customers who want the latest technologies for their product development and production. These industry-firsts from the Vishay Super 12 are among the world’s best products featured on our upgraded web site which makes reviewing, comparing and choosing products even faster and easier across the entire site.
Ravi Pagar, Regional Director – India and Asean, element14

The new series of p-channel MOSFETs, MEPIC and MELF resistors, and more from the Vishay Super 12 series are available from element14 for electronics design and production at :

An industry-first, polarized energy storage capacitor with high capacitance (up to 90 F) and the industry’s highest energy density (13 Ws/g), the Vishay 196 HVC ENYCAP™ series saves space as its low profile (2.5 mm) fits portable and compact designs.

The only E-field shielded IHLP® Power Inductor, the IHLE–4040DC-5A series of low profile, high current inductors handle high transient current spikes without saturation and are suited for engine and transmission control units, and LED drivers.

The Vishay MEPIC (Massive Electro-Pyrotechnic Initiator Chips) series of surface mount thin-film resistors is dedicated to pyrotechnic applications, and is the industry's first MEPIC resistor to be integrated on a PCB substrate to simplify the assembly process; available at

An industry-first series of high-voltage SMD metal film resistors, the MMA0204 HV / MMB0207 HV high-voltage MELF Resistors with 500 V and 1000 V voltage ratings offers high-operating voltage up to 1 kV and high-surge capability up to 3 kV.

The Si7157DP features the lowest on-resistance for a p-channel MOSFET, down to 0.0016 ohms (max.), and is suited for applications with space constraints such as mobile computing, including as power management and load switching.


The 2015 Super 12 products provide a cross-section of Vishay’s very broad product portfolio. The Super 12 provide the industry-leading specifications that design engineers need to create new generations of end products. We are proud to partner with element14 as a preferred distributor for Vishay’s 2015 Super 12 products.
Joel Smejkal, Senior Vice President, Distribution Sales, Vishay
