Malvern, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the availability of new application and technical notes on the company's website that assist designers in implementing constant voltage (CV) pulse charging when using the award-winning 196 HVC ENYCAP™ series of hybrid energy storage capacitors.
The 196 HVC ENYCAP series offers designers exceptional flexibility and enhanced charge and discharge performance for energy harvesting and power line backup applications. Delivering the best energy/volume rating in the industry, the devices are especially suited for applications such as embedded computers, utility meters, point of sale terminals, servers, data storage systems, professional remote controls, real-time clocks, emergency lighting, access systems and surveillance cameras, gaming and vending machines, and network equipment.
For applications requiring a constantly high charge state of the ENYCAP capacitors — such as solar energy systems and emergency signaling in medical devices — a reliable charging solution must also be applied. The "Power Management Solution: Constant Voltage (CV) Pulse Charging of Hybrid Capacitors" application and technical notes propose CV charging as the most cost-efficient charging solution and provide designers with an understanding of how to apply it to fully utilize the performance of 196 HVC ENYCAP devices.
The application and technical notes are available now at http://www.vishay.com/doc?28427 and http://www.vishay.com/doc?28428, respectively. In addition, an infographic on the ENYCAP capacitors is available at http://www.vishay.com/doc?48072.
