FC Series Supercapacitors, also known as Electric Double- Layer Capacitors (EDLCs), are surface mount type components intended for high energy storage applications. The FC Series is designed specifically for reflow soldering, allowing them to be attached to a printed circuit board (PCB) directly. Supercapacitors have characteristics ranging from traditional capacitors and batteries. As a result, supercapacitors can be used like a secondary battery when applied in a DC circuit. These devices are best suited for use in low voltage DC hold-up applications such as embedded microprocessor systems with flash memory.

Reasons to use SuperCaps:

  • Improve battery performance when combined in hybrid power sources
  • Provide an efficient and long lasting means of energy storage when used on their own.

Features

  • Surface mount without holder
  • Wide range of temperature from -25°C to +70°C
  • Maintenance free
  • Operational Voltage: 2.5 – 12 VDC
  • Highly reliable against liquid leakage
  • Lead-free and RoHS Compliant

Applications

  • RAM backup and Flash hold-up
  • Small motor assist
  • Real-Time Clock (RTC) backup
  • High Power LED’s
  • Buzzers
