Abstract: DOWNLOAD WHITE PAPER
Extensive testing of electronic components is required for an understanding of their device physics, their degradation behavior and their failure mechanisms for establishing their longterm reliability. Gaining a better understanding of part characteristics results in the utilization of the right part which can be recommended to customers depending on the application’s operating conditions such as voltage, temperature and relative humidity. Samples of all products produced are evaluated and tested for up to 4,000 hours to establish reliability test data. As we strive to be an industry leader in reliability of our supercapacitors or electric double-layer capacitors, we do our due diligence by backing our product with an understanding of long term reliability of our product mix. This publication presents extensive 4,000-hour reliability test data available for customer evaluation and we have determined that this data is invaluable in various applications.
