KYOCERA AVX has expanded its PrizmaCap line of rugged, high-capacitance, and high-reliability supercapacitors with two new Gen II series.
The new supercapacitors EDLCs supply higher capacitance, voltage, and energy density than Gen I PrizmaCaps and exhibit higher reliability across a wider range of operating temperatures. The Gen II PrizmaCap supercapacitors also provide a rugged, lightweight, and low-profile SMT package with fixed-position terminals extending from the same end and being compatible with hand soldering.
The new supercapacitors provide the lowest profile and widest operating temperature range of any of the company's supercapacitors. They are rated for operating temperatures extending from -40C to +65C at 2.5V and -40C to +85C, derated to 2V. The new PrizmaCap SCP 2.5V HT Series supercapacitors offer the lowest profile and highest operating temperature of any of the company's supercapacitors. They are rated for operating temperatures extending from -25C to +65C at 2.5V and -25C to +105C, derated to 2V.
Both series measure 50mm x 46mm (L x W) with a maximum thickness of 2.3mm for 6F parts, 2.8mm for 13F parts, and 3.4mm for 20F parts. They are rated for 2.5V, exhibit S-level tolerance (+30%/-10%), and are backed by high-reliability testing for lifecycle, high-temperature load life, temperature and humidity characteristics, and vibration resistance.
The supercapacitors are created for use in applications that need pulse power handling, energy storage, power hold-up, and battery assist. They can be employed by themselves or in conjunction with primary or secondary batteries to supply extended backup time, longer battery life, and instantaneous power pulses as needed.
Ideal applications include medical devices, tablets, e-readers, IoT and IIoT devices, VR wearables, handheld electronics, Bluetooth keyboards, and power peripherals.
