Small Form Factor Devices Reduce Applied Costs of UL Listed Products and Speed Time-to-Market
Tecate Group has announced that their extensive inventory of RoHS-compliant CAP-XX supercapacitors is now UL 810A Recognized  under the Components Recognition Program of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc®. The UL 810A standard covers supercapacitors (electromechanical double-layer capacitors, or EDLCs) and is intended to further ensure the safety of electronic products and systems. Tecate is the only CAP-XX global distributor, as well as the world's largest stocking distributor of CAP-XX cells and modules . As such, Tecate distributes eight series of CAP-XX general purpose and high temperature supercapacitor modules and two series of supercapacitor cells on their online store . Online orders are accepted for prototype and full production quantities to further help OEMs/ODMs cost effectively reduce time-to-market.
Designed to address both the power delivery constraints of battery systems and the energy delivery limitations of conventional capacitors, the low profile, low ESR, high-capacitance supercapacitor cells feature a 2.75V operating voltage, while modules comprised of the cells are supplied with either 4.5V or 5.5V operating voltage. Parts boast a wide operating and storage temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees C.
CAP-XX's thin, prismatic cells and modules are widely specified to provide burst and back-up power in space-constrained portable and wireless electronic products. They are most commonly employed in tablet and handheld PCs, mobile phones, bar-code scanners, credit card terminals, digital cameras, solid state disks (SSDs), location-tracking devices, smart meters, battery-free condition monitoring systems, and small uninterruptible power supplies.
While firm pricing is determined according to the quantity and part specified, per-piece pricing in quantities of 1,000 for CAP-XX supercapacitor cells starts at $4.63; module prices start at $5.91. Delivery is from stock to 8 weeks ARO.
