Vishay Siliconix is a producer of energy efficient power integrated circuits (ICs) that help reduce size and energy requirements in mobile computing applications and handheld electronics. Acquired by Vishay in 1998, Vishay Siliconix is also the leading manufacturer of low voltage power MOSFETs and a major manufacturer of analog switches and multiplexers.
Siliconix Incorporated develops power semiconductor products. The company offers low-voltage power MOSFETs (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors) for handheld and portable electronic systems. Its solutions cover analog switches and multiplexers, small-outline power MOSFETs, and power MOSFETs built on Trench technology; DrMOS solution for managing the core voltage in PCs, servers, and other CPU-based systems; microBUCK dc-to-dc converters, which combines the controller IC, MOSFETs, and bootstrap switches for a buck regulator; power ICs; and high-voltage planar MOSFETs. The company's power MOSFETs are used for applications ranging from electric motor control in industrial systems to converting power in the switches and routers that enable communications networks. Its markets range from mobile communications and computing to the fixed telecom infrastructure and include switchmode regulators, linear regulators, and power management devices. The company was founded in 1962 and is based in Santa Clara, California. As of May 12, 2005, Siliconix Incorporated operates as a subsidiary of Vishay Intertechnology Inc.
