Acquired by Vishay who now offers General Instruments semiconductor products as a part of their range of brands of discrete semiconductors, passive components, integrated modules, stress sensors, and transducers.
From the Vishay web site: “Vishay Semiconductors is the world’s #1 supplier of infrared data communications devices (IRDCs), the #1 supplier of diodes and rectifiers, and the #2 and #3 supplier respectively of optocouplers and optical sensors. In these areas, Vishay Semiconductor combines the product lines of the former Vishay Telefunken, General Semiconductor (the largest producer of low-to-medium power rectifiers and TVS diodes), as well as the infrared components business of Infineon Technologies. Together, they provide Vishay customers with a single source for a broad portfolio of semiconductor products used for short-range infrared data transmission, power management, remote controls, and electrical safety.
General Instrument / Vishay Semiconductors’ strength in advanced IR technologies such as high radiant double hetero GaAlAs technology and fast, highly sensitive photo PIN diodes is the basis for Vishay’s success in high-speed infrared transceivers for data communication (IRDC) and infrared receiver modules, where it is the number one supplier worldwide. In optocouplers, Vishay Semiconductors products comply with key safety standards such as VDE, UL, CSA, Fimko and BSI and are used worldwide to make safer switchmode power supplies, AC/DC converters, and battery chargers.
Discrete components from Vishay Semiconductors include Schottky, small-signal switching, RF-band switching, FM capacitance, RF PIN, suppressor, and Zener diodes, plus bridge rectifiers, Schottky rectifiers and fast and ultra fast switching soft recovery rectifiers. LEDs, displays, RF transistors and MOSMICs® complete the Vishay Semiconductor portfolio.”
