KEMET has launched its large cell supercapacitors and supercapacitor modules. With the release, the company aims to meet the growing power management needs of the transportation, industrial, medical, and consumer industries. Applications include power bridging, energy harvesting, and alternative for battery back-up.

"These devices are an excellent complement to the small form factor supercapacitors we released in September," said Per Loof, KEMET Chief Executive Officer. "The availability of these new supercapacitors through our 'Easy-To-Buy-From' model is another example of why our customers consider us the Electronic Components Company."

An electric double layer capacitor (EDLC), also known as a supercapacitor, is an electrochemical device that stores energy via purely electrostatic forces, as opposed to batteries where chemical reduction and oxidation reactions take place. Since the interaction is purely physical, this process can occur much more rapidly than in batteries due to higher power and enables supercapacitors to have a longer lifetime without degradation.

Ordering information: Supercapacitors: S501 & S301, and Supercapacitor Modules: S01 & S02.
