Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. VSH recently rolled out AEC-Q101 qualified p-channel -80 V TrenchFET MOSFET — SQJA81EP — in a bid to strengthen its position in the automotive market.

With lowest on-resistance, the new device is designed to increase power density and efficiency in automotive applications like reverse polarity protection, battery management, high side load switching, as well as LED lighting.

It comes in the compact 5.13 mm by 6.15 mm PowerPAK SO-8L package with gullwing leads. These leads offer increased automatic optical inspection capabilities and provide mechanical stress relief for increased board-level reliability.

Notably, on-resistance of the new MOSFET is 28% lower than the other competing device in the DPAK package.

In addition, it features on-resistance down to 17.3 mΩ maximum / 14.3 mΩ typical at 10 V. The device saves energy by reducing power losses from conduction, while its superior gate charge down to 52 nC at 10 V reduces losses from gate driving.

Markedly, the device is lead (Pb)-free, halogen-free and RoHS-compliant, thereby offering safety margin to support several popular input voltage rails.

The company, with the new p-channel MOSFET, aims to minimize power losses from conduction and increase efficiency in automotive applications.

The latest move is in sync with its persistent focus on enhancing discrete semiconductor offerings.

MOSFET Market Holds Promise

Vishay is well positioned to capitalize on increasing demand for improved efficiency, automation solutions and enhanced robustness. Further, its expanding MOSFET portfolio will benefit from the growing proliferation of electrical and electronic components in power management to enhance energy conservation in several applications such as automotive, consumer electronics, as well as electric vehicle and industrial systems.

In addition to the latest launch, the company also introduced -30 V and -40 V Automotive Grade p-channel TrenchFET power MOSFETs in the beginning of this year.

We believe Vishay is well positioned to reap benefits from the growing power MOSFET market on the back of strengthening MOSFET offerings.

Per a report from Sprint Stat Research, the global market for power MOSFET devices categorized by MOSFET discreet and MOSFET power module is expected to witness a CAGR of 8.1% between 2018 and 2025, and reach $7.31 billion by 2025.

Expanding Product Portfolio

The latest launch bodes well for Vishay’s persistent focus on innovation and expansion of the product portfolio.

Apart from the recent launch of SQJ211ELP, last year, Vishay unveiled VOMA618A, which is an Automotive Grade phototransistor optocoupler. It is capable of saving energy in automotive and high-reliability applications by combining a high current transfer ratio range from 50% to 600%, with a low forward current of 1 mA in the compact SOP-4 mini-flat package.

Further, the company rolled out IHDM-1008BC-3A, which is an IHDM Automotive Grade edge-wound, through-hole inductor that offers stable inductance and saturation over a demanding operating temperature range from -40°C to +180°C.

We believe that the strengthening product portfolio is a key growth driver. This continues to help Vishay in expanding customer base and enhancing end-market performance.

However, weak demand from distributors due to high level of inventories in the supply chain remains a major concern. Further, inventory destocking is another headwind.

Zacks Rank and Other Stocks to Consider

Vishay currently carries a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy). Other top-ranked stocks in the broader technology sector include Analog Devices, Inc. ADI, NXP Semiconductors N.V. NXPI and ON Semiconductor Corporation ON, each carrying a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

Long-term earnings growth for Analog Devices, NXP Semiconductors, and ON Semiconductor is currently projected at 12.3%, 10%, and 41.5%, respectively.

Zacks Names “Single Best Pick to Double”

From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts each have chosen their favorite to skyrocket +100% or more in months to come. From those 5, Director of Research Sheraz Mian hand-picks one to have the most explosive upside of all.

You know this company from its past glory days, but few would expect that it’s poised for a monster turnaround. Fresh from a successful repositioning and flush with A-list celeb endorsements, it could rival or surpass other recent Zacks’ Stocks Set to Double like Boston Beer Company which shot up +143.0% in a little more than 9 months and Nvidia which boomed +175.9% in one year.
