Murata develops world’s thinnest Electric Double-Layer Capacitor
From October 2012, Murata will start mass production of the world’s thinnest electric double-layer capacitors (DMF Series) featuring low resistance and the highest levels of power density throughout the industry. The DMF series features an optimized internal configuration to realize a design approximately 30% more compact than the DME series, making the DMF it the thinnest of its type in the world. The DMF also features the highest levels of power density in the industry and the same low resistance of a few dozen milliohms and stable temperature characteristics as the DME series, enabling it to be charged and discharged flexibly through high-output and low-output areas in a wide variety of temperature ranges.
The capacitors can be used as the power supplies for camera flashlights utilizing high-intensity LEDs, and will contribute to improving the brightness of LED flashlights on not only digital cameras, but also on smartphones. Murata will exhibit the DMF series in booth (8Hall 8F87) at CEATEC JAPAN 2012, which will be held at Makuhari Messe, Chiba Prefecture, between October 2 and 6, 2012.
