Development of Ultra-Slim Low-Resistance Electronic Double –Layer Energy Devices for Maintenance-Free Power Storage Elements
Murata Manufacturing has announced the mass production of ultra-thin low ESR (equivalent series resistance) electric double-layer energy devices. The technology was introduced by Australian component design and manufacturing firm by the name of CAP-XX. The new energy device is capable of flexible charging and discharging from high to low output at a range of temperatures, as well as supporting momentary peak load. In addition to this, the device is capable of leveling battery load as well as driving high-output functions that are normally difficult for batteries alone.
The new device has a high peak voltage of 2.7 V per cell and operating temperature of -30 to +70 degrees Celsius. The swelling of the new energy device is controlled making it ideal for smartphones, tablet PCs as well as other portable slim devices. Among some of applications for the new energy device are; auxiliary power supply for LED flash units in digital cameras, camcorders, or mobile phones, backup solution for SSD for similar devices, supporting peak output for USB bus-powered devices, and reducing battery load fluctuations to name a few.
