Supercapacitors offer extended back up time and longer battery life

30-07-2020 | AVX Limited | Passives

The SCM Series of cylindrical electrochemical double-layer capacitors from AVX provide excellent pulse power handling characteristics based on the combination of extremely high capacitance and very low ESR. Employed by themselves or together with primary or secondary batteries, they offer extended back up time, longer battery life, and give instantaneous power pulses as needed.


All parts are tested for life cycle, high-temperature load life, temperature characteristics, vibration resistance, and humidity characteristics. These SuperCapacitors are compatible with hand-soldering and wave-soldering processes when appropriate precautions are followed.






These devices provide great solutions to hold up, energy harvesting, and pulse power applications including camera flash systems, energy harvesting, GSM/GSR pulse applications, UPS/industrial, wireless alarms, remote metering, scanners, and toys and games.
