MALVERN, Pa., Jan. 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE:VSH) today announced that the Vishay BCcomponents 196 HVC ENYCAP™ series of hybrid ENergY storage capacitors has been recognized with a 2015 EDN Hot 100 Products award. Offering designers exceptional flexibility and enhanced charge and discharge performance for energy harvesting and power line backup applications, the ENYCAP series features the best energy/volume rating in the industry and is available with a wide variety of layouts, capacitance values, and voltage ratings.
Announced annually by UBM’s EDN magazine, the Hot 100 Products awards celebrate the electronics industry’s most significant products of the year based on innovation, usefulness, and popularity. Selected by EDN readers and editors, the awards this year spanned 11 product categories. Vishay’s ENYCAP series was selected as a winner in the Power category.
ENYCAP capacitors can offer low profiles down to 2.5 mm high with energy density of 13 Ws/g. The devices are available with up to six cells and capacitance values from 4 F to 90 F, with stacked through-hole, surface-mount flat, and lay flat configurations featuring pins, tabs, and connectors. Voltage ratings range from 1.4 V up to 8.4 V. The capacitors’ unique technology does not require cell balancing and provides soft charging characteristics < 1 A and low leakage current after 24 hours (IL) from 0.03 mA to 0.24 mA.
The ENYCAP series fills a gap in the energy/power spectrum between electric double layer (EDL) capacitors and conventional batteries. EDL capacitors deliver a considerable amount of power in a short amount of time, while batteries store energy in an efficient way. ENYCAP capacitors provide better energy density than supercapacitors and higher power density than batteries in applications where a different trade-off between these two parameters is important.
