High-Temperature Capacitors Push Performance To 200°C And Beyond

High-Temperature Capacitors Push Performance To 200°C And Beyond

Capacitors are among the most widely used passive components in electronics, so naturally they find their way into many applications in harsh operating environments. In certain applications such as those in oil logging, jet aircraft, nuclear power generation, and other industrial applications, these components are subject to extremely high temperatures, often somewhere in the range of 180°C to 300°C. how2power.com March 2022

Polymer And Hybrid Styles Improve Performance And Reliability Of Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

Polymer And Hybrid Styles Improve Performance And Reliability Of Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

The need for bulk capacitors is growing due to a combination of increased production levels of traditional electronics, circuit trends requiring high capacitance values on supply rails, distributed energy/energy harvesting trends and new electronic circuitry replacing non-electronic applications. The most visible examples of these are low-voltage ICs and electronics integrated into items as simple as everyday hand tools (cordless tools, electronic levels, etc.) to Wi-Fi-linked rain gauges, general-purpose IoT modules and more. Electronic proliferation is across all industry sectors and applications. how2power.com February 2022

Charge Control Methods for SuperCapacitors

Charge Control Methods for SuperCapacitors

Circuit designs exploiting the increased energy storage provided by supercapacitors require more careful consideration of the increased power handling than that of batteries when charging these devices. The unique composition of electrochemical double-layer capacitors (EDLC) inherently allows them to withstand large currents. Table 1 is a brief list of… Tech Briefs | Battery Technology May 2021
