CAP-XX, a leader in ultra-thin supercapacitors which boost power delivery in mobile devices to enable new functionality and extend battery life, today expanded its product line with the high temperature HS and HW series super capacitors.

These super capacitors work reliably in devices where nearby components can get very hot, such as RF Power Amplifiers, which can reach 120°C during transmission, as well as in devices which are exposed to environmental high temperatures, such as a mobile phone left on the dashboard of a car in direct sunlight, or in the engine compartment in an automotive application.

The new supercapacitors offer long-life performance at up to 2.75V in single-cell versions and 5.5V in dual-cell versions with the two cells connected in series. All devices operate from -40 to +85°C.

"These ruggedized supercapacitors support the most environmentally-demanding, power-hungry mobile phone applications," said Anthony Kongats, CEO of CAP-XX. "The higher voltage enables high-power LED Flash for better pictures, and can double audio power for richer-sounding music. The new high-temperature threshold assures reliability, even in a phone left in a car on a hot day."

According to Stuart Robinson, director of handset component technologies for Strategy Analytics, "Consumers want their cellphones to be as good as their digital still cameras and produce clear pictures even in low light. We estimate that over the next three years high-powered LED flash in cellphones will grow at an annual average rate of 155%, and will be in over 70% of all camera phones by 2010. CAP-XX supercapacitors are a technology enabler for this market. We have seen them power multiple high-current LEDs to full light intensity, producing clear pictures in low light from up to 3 meters away.
I expect their new higher-voltage models will make the results even better."

Supercapacitors deliver 100x the power of batteries and store 10,000x more energy than conventional capacitors. They store electrical energy during periods of low-load power, and then release it in quick "bursts" during peak-power events, supplementing power from the source and smoothing out voltage fluctuations.
