Supercapacitors Permit Low Temperature Operation and Reduce EMI
Tue, 02/26/2008 - 4:52am
Tecate Industries announced the CAP-XX’s ultra-thin G Series of general-purpose supercapacitors. Comprised of the GS and GW Series of single-cell and dual-cell supercapacitors, the RoHS-compliant parts boast low impedance and a very low profile. The devices offer long-life performance at up to 2.3V in the single-cell versions and 4.5V in dual-cell configurations, with two cells connected in series. Both versions operate from -40°C to +75°C while providing a small and thin form factor for any specified ESR and capacitance. The low ESR, high capacitance supercapacitors provide the power to meet peak current loads, while storing enough energy to meet large power surges. The GW Series features a small 28.5 mm × 17.0 mm footprint and combines high capacitance (C up to 0.4 Farad at 4.5V) with low equivalent-series-resistance (ESR as low as 60 m?) in a thin (0.90 mm to 2.90 mm) package. The GS Series features a small 39.0 mm × 17.0 mm footprint and combines high capacitance (C up to 0.7 Farad at 4.5V) with a very low ESR (as low as 34 m?) in the same thin (0.90 mm to 2.9 mm) package. While firm pricing is determined according to quantity and Series specified, per piece pricing in quantities of 1,000 for the GS Series ranges from $3.06 to $5.69; GW Series prices range from $3.06 to $5.37. Delivery is from stock to 8 weeks ARO.
