|Vishay Intertechnology, Inc was incorporated in Delaware in 1962. The Company is a global manufacturer and supplier of discrete semiconductors and passive components. Semiconductors include MOSFETs, diodes, and optoelectronic components. Passive components include resistive products, capacitors, and inductors. The Company offers its customers “one-stop shop” access to one of the most comprehensive electronic component product lines of any manufacturer in the United States, Europe, and Asia. The Company’s semiconductor components are used for a wide variety of functions, including power control, power conversion, power management, signal switching, signal routing, signal blocking, signal amplification, two-way data transfer, one-way remote control, and circuit isolation. The Company’s passive components are used to restrict current flow, suppress voltage increases, store and discharge energy, control alternating current and voltage, filter out unwanted electrical signals, and perform other functions. The Company’s components are used in virtually every type of product that contains electronic circuitry, in the industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, power supplies, military, aerospace, and medical markets. Its semiconductor products include MOSFETs, Diodes, and Optoelectronic Components. Its passive components include resistors, capacitors, and magnetics such as inductors and transformers. Passive components are used to store electrical charges, to limit or resist electrical current, and to help in filtering, surge suppression, measurement, timing, and tuning applications. The Company’s manufacturing process involves two phases of production: wafer fabrication and assembly. In the United States, its manufacturing facilities are located in California, Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, New York, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, and Wisconsin. In Asia, its main manufacturing facilities are located in the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of China (Taiwan), India, and Malaysia. In Europe, its main manufacturing facilities are located in Germany, France, and the Czech Republic. The Company sells its products to original equipment manufacturers, electronic manufacturing services companies, which manufacture for OEMs on an outsourcing basis, and independent distributors that maintain large inventories of electronic components for resale to OEMs and EMS companies. The Company’s primary competitors by product type are: MOSFETs: Fairchild Semiconductor, Infineon, International Rectifier, NXP Semiconductors, ON Semiconductor, Rohm, STMicroelectronics, Toshiba; Diodes: Fairchild Semiconductor, Infineon, NXP Semiconductors, ON Semiconductor, Rohm, STMicroelectronics, Toshiba; Optoelectronic Components: Avago, Rohm, Sharp, Toshiba; Resistors and Inductors: KOA, Panasonic, Rohm, TDK-EPCOS, Yageo; and Capacitors: AVX, KEMET, Murata, Nichicon, Panasonic, TDK-EPCOS, Yageo. The Company’s operations, products and/or product packaging are subject to environmental laws and regulations governing air emissions, wastewater discharges, the handling, disposal and remediation of hazardous substances, wastes and certain chemicals.|
