VINATech have launched a new ground breaking range of 85 Degree C EDLC Super capacitors

VINATech have launched a new ground breaking range of 85 Degree C RATED EDLCs The VET series of +85c Single cell 2.7v EDLC capacitors and 5.4v modules was launched in Paris last week. This is probably the first genuine +85c Radial Pulse Capacitor series that has been longed for by Engineers from all Industry sectors across the globe wanting a genuine +85c range. The limitation to higher temperatures has in the past been the Electrolyte used by EDLC Manufacturers but now the R&D Team at VINATech have developed a new solution which will be particularly ideal for all IoT and AMI applications. Until recently, managing high temperatures was managed by de-rating actual working voltage of standard +65c EDLC types, however the…

Product Of the Week: MSGEQ7

Seven Band Graphic Equalizer Display Filter The seven band graphic equalizer IC is a CMOS chip that divides the audio spectrum into seven bands. 63Hz, 160Hz, 400Hz, 1kHz, 2.5kHz, 6.25kHz and 16kHz. The seven frequencies are peak detected and multiplexed to the output to provide a DC representation of the amplitude of each band. No external components are needed to select the filter responses. Only an off chip resistor and capacitor are needed to select the on chip clock oscillator frequency. The filter centre frequencies track this frequency. Other than coupling and decoupling capacitors, no other external components are needed. The chip supply can be between 2.7 and 5.5 volts with 5 volts providing the best performance. The device has very low…
