VINATech has launched a new family of high density 3.8V cost effective, Hybrid Super Capacitors, with ultra low Leakage Current to support its existing VLC range. EDLC Technology is being continually developed and enhanced by VINATech’s R&D Team and this has led to the new VPC series which has been developed utilising standardised EDLC production processes to reduce the costs of this advanced technology.

The VPC series, an environmentally friendly Hybrid Lithium Capacitor family, has been developed to reduce costs against more expensive Pulse Battery technologies whilst offering significantly lower physical size lower ESR, wider temperature ranges and higher discharge currents from similar sizes and comparable Battery based technology.

The major attributes of the high density VPC series is certainly the ultra low Leakage current and Low ESR characteristics which makes them an suitable candidate for cost effective Pulse management and to support projects where Power budgets are critical; such as long term Battery based primary powered products such as remote Metering, Gas and Water Meters plus asset tracking devices and automotive applications such as e-call.

The first tranche of this new RoHS and REACH compliant Pulse Capacitors will see 1030, 1325 and 1335 sizes introduced with added benefits of considerable size reductions compared to the compatible Battery technologies and current VLC series. The next generation will be smaller sized and suitable for a wider range of IoT applications.
