murata-umac[CES 2016] Murata of America has just announced that they managed to successfully develop the UMAC Series, which so happens to be a large-capacity cylinder-type energy device. This particular product is said to be able to deliver an energy harvesting system, in addition to a quick charge solution, and backup power supply – all of it arriving in an extremely small form factor.


After all, with the ever growing proliferation of mobile devices worldwide, it goes without saying that there is strong demand for devices that have high energy storage capacity, low ESR, fast charging and discharging capabilities, not to mention requiring it to have the ability to withstand load fluctuations. UMAC boasts of the ability to ensure those features are part of the deal, in addition to an exceptional life span, and can also double up as a secondary battery just like how a capacitor functions.

In other words, the UMAC works great as a power supply for wearable devices, as well as in sensor nodes for wireless sensor networks. There are other specific characteristics of the UMAC which will include a maximum charge/discharge rate of 10 C (30 mA), a highly safe design that relies on materials to combine small discharge capacity with chemical stability, and a charge recovery rate of at least 90 percent after 1,000 cycles.
