Backup/power boost supercapacitors, in distribution

March 19, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor Rutronik has added a series of supercapacitors from Korchip; the Starcap TR series provides a reliable package of high capacitance and low resistance with thin form factor. It is suited to DRAM back-up for SSD and peak power assist for battery packs.

Korchip’s (, Korea) Starcap TR series supercapacitor with a rated working voltage of 2.5VDC has the ability to charge and discharge for a million times and more. It provides higher capacitance than electrolytic capacitors and higher power than a secondary battery. Use them for applications requiring great stability and efficiency, e.g. motor start power applications, memory back-up for car black box and pulse power assistance for smart meters. Its operating temperature range is from -40° up to +70°C.
