AVX Corporation has launched a new series of standard and custom supercapacitors engineered to provide peak performance in an array of SWaP-optimized, battery-powered products. The new SCP Series PrizmaCap supercapacitors have a wide operating temperature range (-55°C to +90°C), high capacitance (3.5–15F) and energy density (1.14–2.43Wh/kg) of any small form factor. It has an extremely lightweight (<2g) and low-profile form factor (0.8–2mm) based on propylene carbonate electrolyte technology, which has been proven safe and effective in energy storage applications including lithium-ion batteries. These supercapacitors can be used in primary or secondary batteries to extend backup time, improve battery life, and provide instantaneous power pulses in energy storage, energy and power holdup, pulse power handling, and battery assist applications within a range of consumer, commercial, and industrial electronics that prioritize size, weight, and power (SWaP) optimization. The series is especially well suited for use in end products including wearable and handheld devices, industrial equipment, wireless keyboards, power peripherals, tablets, and e-readers.


SCP Series PrizmaCap supercapacitors are available in three standard form factors with45mm×45mm footprint, one of three ultralow height profiles: 0.8mm, 1.3mm, or 2.0mm, and two fixed-position, surface-mount terminals. These three standard solutions (SCPB08A355SNA, SCPB13A855SNA, and SCPB20A156SNA) are rated for up to 15F capacitance, 2.1V electrical potential from -55°C to +65°C, 8.63A peak current, and 2.43Wh/kg energy density  with appropriate derating to 1.1V. They are also rated for maximum DCL as low as 50μA after 72 hours of operation, maximum ESR as low as 30mΩ at 1kHz and 55mΩ at DC, and up to 2,582W/kg power density and 0.0092Wh maximum energy.
