In continuation of his series of business conferences, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. met with the executives of the Vishay Siliconix in San Francisco, California.

Vishay, through its subsidiary, Siliconix, is one of the leading companies in the development of power semiconductor products that improve the efficiency of power management circuitry in end products while reducing space requirements. As one of the world’s best brands in low-voltage power MOSFETs (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors), Vishay Siliconix products play a significant role in making handheld and portable electronic systems that are operating more efficiently from smaller and lighter battery packs.

Likewise, Vishay Siliconix’s higher-voltage MOSFETs are utilized for applications from electric motor control in industrial systems to convert power in the switches and routers, enabling the world’s communication networks. (

During the meeting, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary Alfredo Pascual discussed Vishay’s plans to expand its presence in the Philippines. He also shared that its operations in the United States employ a large number of Filipinos.
