The 3V ultra-thin prismatic supercap has a 23% higher energy density than a 2.7V supercap of the same size. It can be used in conjunction with 3V coin cell batteries, in place of bulky 3V cylindrical supercaps to free up space, or in place of batteries to recharge environmentally friendly batteryless devices. In order to provide excellent performance for Internet of Things (IoT), medical, and other space-constrained and mission-critical electronic equipment, CAP-XX develops the DMV750 ultra-thin 2.2 mm prismatic 3-V supercapacitor. This versatile 3-V prismatic supercap can replace a large 3-V cylindrical supercap to conserve design space or support the industry-standard 3-V coin cell battery to increase its lifespan and usefulness. Micro energy harvesting may eventually eliminate the need for batteries altogether when it is able to capture enough RF, vibration, sunlight, or other environmental energy to fully charge a supercapacitor used in environmentally friendly battery-less products.
High peak pulse power is provided by the 3-V, DMV750 supercap, enabling battery-free or more battery-efficient applications. It achieves this by storing 23% more energy in a comparable small container than a 2.7-volt supercap. Its measurements are 21 x 14 x 2.2 millimeters, and its operating range is -20 to +85 degrees Celsius. Although though not all Internet of Things (IoT) devices need supercapacitors, many might use the new DMV750 supercapacitor to store and release the energy required for peak power operations like data transfer. Applications for the 3-Volt DMV750 typically include: energy collection for wireless HVAC sensors, remote sensors, actuators, RTC and memory backup for asset tracking, peak load shaving when set up in conjunction using a CR2032 3-V coin cell battery. Supercapacitors manage peak power events to help batteries and energy harvesters programmed to provide low-power current at maximum efficiency. This makes it possible for designers to use low-power, low-cost, low-power batteries or sporadic ambient energy sources like solar PV to extend their run-time and cycle life. The ultra-thin 3-V prismatic supercapacitor DMV750 provides engineers with a multitude of solutions to power supply problems in confined space, mission-critical, and sustainable electronic systems.
