MURATA AMERICAS: Supercapacitors

January 10, 2013

This company recently introduced its DMF series, a high peak current electrical double-layer capacitor (EDLC). The supercapacitors reportedly feature low resistance (40-60 mΩ) and stable temperature characteristics, enabling them to be charged and discharged frequently over the operating range of -30°C to +70°C. Initially, the DMF series will be offered with 330 mF and 470 mF capacitance values to support various energy requirement demands. Package thickness ranges from 2.5 mm ± 0.2 mm to 3.2 mm ± 0.2 mm, and all products in the series provide an instantaneous maximum working voltage of 5.5 V.

The new EDLC design can reportedly provide an optimized internal configuration to improve energy and power density. In addition, the DMF series reportedly offers a simplified, inline terminal configuration that optimizes board space. The low ESR allows for high output current with quick charge and discharge characteristics.
