Coin Cell Style Electric Double-Layer Supercapacitors Provide Memory Backup in Circuits up to 6.3 WVDC

With quick-response and recharge times, these devices offer higher power than batteries and greater energy than typical aluminum electrolytic capacitors.


The EDC and EDS series of Coin Cell style EDLC capacitors from Cornell Dubilier (CDE) can replace or extend battery life in on-board memory backup. With quick-response and recharge times, these devices offer higher power than batteries and greater energy than typical aluminum electrolytic capacitors without degradation over millions of charge-discharge cycles.

Both series offer values from 0.047 to 1.5 Farad capacity, at voltages up to 6.3 WVDC for the EDC series; and 5.5 WVDC for the EDS series. Operating temperature for the EDS series is from -25 °C to +85 °C, with the EDC series offering -25 °C to +70 °C. Three case configurations are available for horizontal, vertical and radial-lead PCB mounting.

EDC and EDS series capacitors are ready to board mount in such applications as real-time clock (RTC) backup, power failure backup, battery assist and in market segments such as smart metering, HVAC controls, building automation, communication systems, appliances, instruments and other microprocessor-based devices. Because of their high volumetric power density, they can be an effective way to reduce board size and weight. Either series can be used as a drop-in replacement for similar value capacitors recently discontinued by other manufacturers.

  • TYPE MXT, X2, EMI/RFI Suppression Capacitors, Harsh Environment
    Released Nov, 2023

    TYPE MXT, X2, EMI/RFI Suppression Capacitors, Harsh Environment

    Type MXT Series Metallized Polypropylene Film Capacitor, designed to suppress conducted electromagnetic/radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) at a circuit’s power input. These capacitors are perfect for use in harsh environments having met the demanding 85/85 THB (Temperature, Humidity, Bias) test requirements. Class X2 capacitors, like the MXT, are typically connected across the AC input to prevent interference from spreading through power lines or other devices on the same circuit.
