By adding CAP-XX’s new HS206 supercapacitor peak-power support to an industrial or consumer device, designers can size batteries and power circuitry for average power, protect against lost data during drops and hot battery swaps and enable so-called “last gasp transmissions.” By employing the HS206 in BriteSound Power Architecture for Music Phones, engineers can drive peak power functions, such as audio and LED Flash and leave enough battery power to handle data transfers and network polls without compromising audio power.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
