Today’s wearables demand lower capacitance, lower clamping voltage, and a smaller form factor.
One of the most fascinating aspects of many technologies is the way they transform the world in ways completely unanticipated by their developers.
Industry observers will not argue that the explosion in the adoption of motion sensors, principally accelerometers, was enabled by reducing the form factor to the point where the sensors could easily be integrated into mobile applications.
In an ultracapacitor, end of life does not arrive abruptly and without warning, as it may with batteries. An ultracapacitor will conceivably continue to operate until there is not enough energy left in the device when fully charged to do the job.
Designers can gain valuable insight by going into the lab when the first silicon comes out to evaluate the results.
