This episode of Tech Specs is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

Vishay Ruggedized Electrical Double Layer Energy Storage Caps

The Vishay BCcomponents 225 EDLC-R ENYCAP series offer a high power density of up to 4.1 Wh/kg, have a ruggedized construction to withstand use in high humidity applications, and provide an exceptionally long life at lower operating temperatures. The 2.7 V electrical double-layer capacitors, a type of supercapacitor, are available from 20 F to 60 F in small cases, with sizes from 16 mm x 20 mm to 18 mm x 40 mm. Low internal resistance allows for rapid charge and discharge, with a rated cycle life greater than 500,000 cycles. The 225 EDLC-R ENYCAP series delivers the density, ruggedness, and performance to be used in power backup, burst power, energy harvesting, micro UPS power sources, and energy recovery applications. AEC-Q200 qualified devices are also available for automotive applications.
