Vishay's OPTO blog site for the latest in all things OPTO ~ articles, videos, and products
In the Vishay, Heilbronn Germany, Opto lab they decided to have a bit of fun with Vishay components. These little guys have LEDS and IREDs as weapons (and one has a IREDs nose). Resistor arms, chip feet, and a bit of PCB and connector goodness to make up the rest of the body. All topped off with diode antennas (for communication of course). The dragon is courtesy of a mini-engineer a.k.a. engineer’s daughter.
(they need names; submit your suggestions in the comments below)
(I think the dragon is winning)
