ACTE announce new breed of thin Supercapacitors targeted at Internet of Things applications

ACTE, U.K’s are delighted to announce the launch of a new generation, ultra-thin range of electrolytic double-layer Supercapacitors from Cap-XX.

The new CapXX Thinline series are aimed at the growing number of low power Internet of Things applications, requiring more efficient power sources to run the latest Microprocessors and RF devices running off 2.75 Volts and below. CapXX supercapacitors are ideal in supporting these applications, either to provide energy harvesting storage or in conjunction with supporting batteries, for instance in low temperatures or pulsed power load applications.

The CapXX Thinline series initially comprise of 18 cell options, available in 3 package sizes, varying in thickness from 600um – 2mm. The package size options; 20x20mm (A series), 28x20mm (W series) or 39x20mm (S series) are capable of delivering capacitances ranging from 60mF – 2.4F depending on cell specified, whilst CapXX Thinline series offer a low ESR range, down to 16mOhm.

CapXX patented technology also ensures that capacitance leakage is lowest in class, just 1µA per cell ensuring they are suitable for today’s Internet of Things applications demanding extremely long power life.  Military grade versions are available on request.

David Taylor, PR Manager of ACTE comments “Seeing much success in the integration of CapXX supercaps into a whole host of embedded applications, CapXX’s latest range allows us to offer an even more comprehensive range aimed at next generation IoT areas such as; active credit cards, RFID tags, retail security tags, electronic shelf labels, wearable electronics, all which are powered by coin cells, thin film/solid state batteries or energy harvesters.

In addition to CapXX offering the lowest leakage and highest power density 2.7V - 5.5V super capacitors available today, they offer excellent shock and vibration resistance to IEC68-2-6. CapXX super capacitors are also particularly good at minimising downtime on portable devices with ultra-quick charging times due to the absence of inrush current limits, as opposed to several hours battery charging.

All CapXX parts are RoHS, REACH and WEEE compliant, lead free, halogen free and conflict metal free. Products are UL certified.

The latest range are sampling now, further details can be found within the Product Guide (download here) and on our Cap-XX Products Page.

CAP-XX develops high power, high energy super capacitors in thin, flat, prismatic packages. They enable smaller, lighter, more functional and longer-running electronic products by providing peak power support to pulsed loads and short-term power support during interruptions to the primary source. Founded in 1997 and headquartered in Sydney, Australia, Cap-XX have multiple patents on their technology and have sold over 20 million super capacitors, including to globally recognised brand names.
