This new series of capacitor technologies is designed to meet the growing power management needs of the transportation, industrial, medical and consumer markets. Typical applications include power bridging, energy harvesting as well as an alternative for battery back-up.

“These devices are an excellent complement to the small form factor Supercapacitors we released in September,” said Per Loof, KEMET Chief Executive Officer. “The availability of these new Supercapacitors through our ‘Easy-To-Buy-From’ model is another example of why our customers consider us the Electronic Components Company.”

Technical Overview

An electric double layer capacitor (EDLC), also known as a Supercapacitor, is an electrochemical device that stores energy via purely electrostatic forces, as opposed to batteries where chemical reduction and oxidation reactions take place. Since the interaction is purely physical, this process can occur much more rapidly than in batteries due to higher power and enables Supercapacitors to have a significantly longer lifetime without degradation.
