Vishay (VSH) Unveils Optocoupler, Expands Portfolio – November 28, 2022

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (ESR Free Report) is leaving no stone unturned to expand its discrete offerings to strengthen its presence in the booming semiconductor industry.

The unveiling of the VOA300 linear optocoupler is proof of the same. The VOA300 is an automotive-grade device that offers an industry-high isolation voltage of 5300 Vrms.

In addition, the VOA300 offers low power consumption of < 15 mW, high linearity of ± 0.25 % and low input-output capacitance of 1 pF typical.

It also offers fast response time, increased transfer gain stability of ±0.005%/°C typical, and a single-ended output for design flexibility.

We note that Vishay will likely gain momentum among applications in harsh industrial environments with the latest optocoupler, as it has an operating temperature range of up to +125 °C.

In addition, it offers reliable and fast data transfers at a rate of 1.4 MHz, making it ideal for measuring galvanically isolated current and voltage in electric vehicles, such as on-board chargers, traction inverters and DC/DC converters.

Key insights

All the aforementioned features of the VCNT2025X01 make Vishay well-positioned to gain solid momentum among automotive, smart home, industrial and office applications.

With these various use cases, the launch of the VOA300 is expected to strengthen Vishay’s presence in the growing optocoupler market.

According to a Mordor Intelligence report, this market is anticipated to reach $4.26 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 8.8% between 2021 and 2026.

Moreover, the latest move bodes well for VSH’s deepening focus on expanding its optoelectronics portfolio.

Therefore, an expanding optoelectronics portfolio will help Vishay capitalize on growth opportunities in the booming optoelectronics market. According to a research and markets report, the market size is expected to register a CAGR of 10.2% between 2021 and 2026 and reach $9.8 billion by 2026.

We believe that Vishay’s rising prospects in this promising market are likely to help it win the confidence of investors in the coming days.

Vishay has lost 14.2 percent since the start of the year, compared with the industry’s decline of 4.1 percent.

Expanding the product portfolio

The latest launch added strength to its overall product portfolio.

Apart from the latest move, Vishay recently acquired MaxPower Semiconductor, a fabless power semiconductor supplier. The acquisition helped Vishay improve its MOSFET product offering.

Vishay also launched four Hyperfast FRED Pt Gen 5 600 V rectifiers to strengthen its discrete semiconductor portfolio.

VSH also unveiled three inductors designed to save board space and increase efficiency in IoT devices and wearable electronics.

Additionally, Vishay’s launch of 15 Hyperfast and Ultrafast rectifiers remains noteworthy. Also, the introduction of the two short-wavelength ultraviolet emitting diodes, namely the VLMU35CR40-275-120 and VLMU35CR41-275-120, in a ceramic and quartz-based package is a positive.

We believe these efforts will continue to shape Vishay’s growth trajectory and maintain momentum across its various end markets.
