Vishay Intertechnology Inc. (NYSE: VSH) released two new devices in its industry-first family of power MOSFETs built on an enhanced process flow with strict manufacturing process controls for implantable medical applications.

The devices released today are an n- and p-channel 12 V MOSFET in the PowerPAK® SC-70 (SMMA511DJ) and a 20 V dual n-channel MOSFET in the PowerPAK SC75 (SMMB912DK). The new MOSFETs are distinguished from commercial devices by their high quality and reliability as ensured by enhanced quality control gates for every lot: statistical bin limit (SBL), yield limit (SYL), and part average testing (PAT) controls for wafers and component packages, and homogeneous reliability testing for all wafer lots. The rigorous SMM medical MOSFET process flow also includes an acceptable quality level (AQL) of 0.04 %.

El Paso Midstream Group, Inc., a subsidiary of El Paso Corporation (NYSE:EP), and Spectra Energy Corp, recently disclosed the execution of a Memorandum of Understanding (NASDAQ:MOU) to jointly develop the proposed Marcellus Ethane Pipeline System (MEPS) project. Under the terms of the MOU, El Paso Midstream and Spectra Energy will each own a 50-percent interest and jointly operate MEPS.

With the newly announced joint effort, MEPS will utilize both existing rights-of-way and infrastructure of Spectra Energy's Texas Eastern pipeline system in Pennsylvania and Ohio, as well as portions of El Paso's Tennessee Gas Pipeline system from Ohio to the Gulf Coast.

El Paso Corporation provides natural gas and related energy products in a safe, efficient, and dependable manner. The company owns North America's largest interstate natural gas pipeline system and one of North America's largest independent natural gas producers.
