Kyocera AVX Offers Gen II PrizmaCap Supercapacitors for Advanced Electronics Applications

Jan. 2, 2024
Designed with enhanced capacitance, reliability and temperature range, PrizmaCap supercapacitors provide energy storage for a range of electronics applications.

Kyocera AVX has expanded its PrizmaCap line with the Gen II series of supercapacitors. The prismatic electrochemical double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) offers an advancement in energy storage technology.

Key features of the Gen II series supercapacitors include:

  • Higher capacitance, voltage and energy density, which allows for energy storage and use in a range of electronics applications
  • Increased reliability across a wider range of operating temperatures, making them suitable for rugged and demanding environments
  • Rugged design is lightweight with a low-profile SMT package with fixed-position terminals, making them compatible with hand soldering.

Technical Specifications, Applications

The PrizmaCap SCP 2.5V Series is rated for operating temperature ranges extending from −40°C to 65°C at 2.5V and −40°C to 85°C derated to 2.0V. The HT version’s operating temperatures extend from −25°C to 65°C and −25°C to 105°C derated to 2.0V.

Both series measure 50 mm × 46 mm with varying maximum thickness based on capacitance ratings. They are rated for 2.5V and exhibit S-level tolerance (+30%/−10%). The supercapacitors are lead-free compatible and compliant with IEC 62391-2-2006, UL 810A, RoHS and REACH requirements.
