Enable IPC Corporation Ultracapacitor Delivers Twice the Expected Capacitance
(Nanowerk News) Enable IPC Corporation announced that the continuing development of the ultracapacitor product has resulted in a device that delivers more than twice the expected capacitance.
"On July 25th, EIPC announced that we had exceeded our performance goal of 3,000 farads per liter, which is in the range of the published performance data of similar commercially-available devices," said Enable's Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Mark Daugherty. "Today, we're prepared to announce that we have since more than doubled the performance to an average of over 6,000 farads per liter."
The company unveiled its prototype package at the nanoTX '07 conference in Dallas October 3rd and 4th. The response from those attending was overwhelmingly positive.
"We are working on the completion of our packaged alpha units," Dr. Daugherty said. "Once that is finished and the devices are fully tested and characterized, we anticipate making beta units available for field testing and analysis."
