Murata Launches UMAC Series – Advanced Miniaturized Energy Devices

Reading time ( words)

Murata Americas today announced that it has developed the UMAC Series, a large-capacity cylinder-type energy device. The product delivers an energy harvesting system, quick charge solution, and backup power supply in a miniaturized package. The solution is being exhibited at CES 2016 from January 6-9 in Las Vegas.

The demand for devices with high energy storage capacity, low ESR, fast charging and discharging capabilities, and the ability to withstand load fluctuations has grown exponentially in recent years. Not only does the UMAC deliver those features as well as an exceptional life span, but it may also be used as a secondary battery in the same way as a capacitor. This makes it well suited as a power supply for wearable devices or in sensor nodes for wireless sensor networks.

“At Murata, we continually innovate the advanced solutions that markets demand. The UMAC device reflects that commitment – whether we are talking about a product for mobile phones or information terminals. We pride ourselves on resolving some of the most complex challenges that today’s design engineers face,” stated Peter Tiller, General Manager - Component & Timing Product, Murata Americas.

Other specific characteristics include a maximum charge/discharge rate of 10 C (30 mA), a highly safe design that uses materials to combine small discharge capacity with chemical stability, and a charge recovery rate of at least 90 percent after 1,000 cycles.

The best technology is dead in the water if your domestic supply chain won’t support it. That was just one of the takeaways from Dr. Judy Dickson’s talk during the SMTA Additive Electronics TechXchange. In her presentation, titled “Advanced PWBs: A Collaboration Between Design, Operations, and the Supply Chain,” Dickson, a senior principal systems engineer at Northrop Grumman Mission Systems, laid out the many challenges her department faces in fielding HDI advanced packaging into the next decade. Most of these challenges are related to sourcing the necessary materials in the U.S.
