Supercapacitors from AVX

AVX Corporation is a leading international manufacturer and supplier offering a broad range of devices including capacitors, resistors, filters, couplers, sensors, controls, circuit protection devices, connectors and antennas. AVX components can be found in many electronic devices and systems worldwide. 

Supercapacitors or electrolytic double layer capacitors have rapidly become recognised, not only as an excellent compromise between “electronic” or “dielectric” capacitors such as ceramic, tantalum, film and aluminum electrolytic, and batteries, but also as a valuable technology for providing a unique combination of characteristics, particularly very high pulse power and capacitance densities. 
 
AVX’s range of electrolytic double-layer capacitors offers excellent pulse power handling characteristics based on the combination of very high capacitance and very low ESR. Used by themselves or in conjunction with primary or secondary batteries, they provide extended back up time, longer battery life, and provide instantaneous power pulses as needed. AVX SuperCapacitors offer great solutions to hold up, energy harvesting, and pulse power applications.
