Vishay Intertechnology has reported that the company’s 235 EDLC-HVR ENYCAP capacitor series has been recognized with 2021 AspenCore World Electronics Achievement Award in the High Performance Passive/Discrete Devices category.
The devices are the industry’s first ruggedized ENYCAP electrical double-layer energy storage capacitors to offer useful life of 2,000 hours at +85 °C while meeting the highest class of moisture resistance: the biased 85/85 1,500-hour test.
Product award winners are selected by a judging panel comprised of AspenCore editors, as well as through online voting by engineers around the globe. This year, Vishay’s 235 EDLC-HVR series received the most votes in the High Performance Passive/Discrete Devices category.
The long useful life of 235 EDLC-HVR series devices is double that of standard electrical double-layer capacitors, enabling maintenance-free operation and greater design flexibility for energy harvesting and power backup applications in harsh, high humidity environments.
Uses include a wide range of industrial, renewable energy, and automotive applications.
Among them are smart meters, handheld electronics, robotics, solar panels, e-latch door systems, transmission gearboxes, auxiliary power backup for navigation systems, emergency lighting, and more. AEC-Q200 qualified and UL-810 recognized, the capacitors meet the highest quality
Award winners were recognized at a ceremony held during the Global CEO Summit on Nov. 3 in Shenzhen, China. Tommy Cheng, Business Marketing Shenzhen, Capacitors of Vishay China, was on hand to accept the award on Vishay’s behalf.
