KEMET Introduces Automotive Grade Supercapacitors


KEMET, a division of YAGEO Group, has announced its new high-performance supercapacitors for automotive electronics - the FMD and FU0H series.

These supercapacitor series delivers 1,000 hours at 85 °C / 85 % RH-rated voltage and with operational temperature ranging from -40 to 85 °C. The FMD series offers the highest lifetime with up to 4,000 hours. Supercapacitors have characteristics ranging from traditional capacitors and batteries. So they can be used like a secondary battery when applied in a DC circuit.

The FMD and FU0H series are qualified to an automotive testing protocol. They are manufactured in an ISO TS 16949 certified plant, and are subjected to PPAP/PSW and change control. These supercapacitors are ideal for automotive applications that needs a main power system backup during power loss, such as ADAS, autonomous vehicles, and central gateway ECUs.

Additionally, these supercapacitors offer power backup in equipment ranging from IoT devices and smart meters to medical devices and industrial-level computing devices.
