|High reliability EDLC supercapacitor ideal for extended temperature long-life applications|
Murata announced the addition of the DMG series to the company’s line of thin, low-resistance, electrical double-layer capacitors (EDLCs). The DMG supercapacitors, which provide high power back-up, achieve high reliability with a five-year life span at 70 degrees C, making them an ideal choice for enterprise solid state drive (SSD) manufacturers and telecom “last gasp” applications. Smart meters are also a key application for the DMG series as the full operating temperature range is – 30 degrees C to + 85 degrees C.

|High peak current electrical double-layer capacitors offer low ESR in small slim package|
Murata introduced a high peak current electrical double-layer capacitor (EDLC) series with a profile of 2.5mm±0.2mm. The newest EDLC series from Murata also features lowest resistance (40m ohm to 60m ohm) and stable temperature characteristics, enabling it to be charged and discharged frequently over the operating range of -30°C to +70°C. Initially, the DMF EDLC series will offer 330mF and 470mF capacitance values to support various energy requirement demands.
