Nanoramic Labs’ FastCap® SD85-500 Chip Ultracapacitor for Backup Power in Solid State Drives

Nanoramic’s FastCap®Chip   Ultracapacitor has   10x   higher   energy   density   than   the   polymer   tantalum ultracapacitors, therefore SSD designers can benefit from a high energy interim power supply in a small and slim design. Such benefits allow for more available space on the PCB, longer back up time, and comparable or lower cost than tantalum capacitor solutions. Designers can utilize the additional space for other crucial components like more DRAM or flash memory. This is a significant advantage, as SSD designers are finding ways to increase the memory density on standard size SSD cards.

Ulyss EP for Mud Pulse Telemetry

In this paper, we’ll introduce FastCap’s® Ulyss EP as a solution for mud pulse telemetry that extends battery life, reduces cost, and improves safety. Mud pulse telemetry is a common method of transmitting digital information to the surface during Measurement While Drilling (MWD) and Logging While Drilling (LWD) operations. These systems rapidly modulate the flow of drilling fluid to create pressure waves that travel through the drill pipe. The resulting pressure waves are then decoded by a transducer on the surface. These systems, inherently, require an energy storage solution that can provide high power in short bursts.

Ultracapacitors for Aerospace and Defense Applications

In aerospace and defense systems, electronic components are used in a wide range of subsystems including telemetry subsystems, structural subsystems, tracking subsystems, velocity control subsystems, power distribution subsystems, and thermal control subsystems. Most of these applications subject electronic systems to shocks, vibrations, and hostile temperatures. Unlike conventional supercapacitors, Nanoramic's FastCap® low temperature and structural ultracapacitors are engineered to withstand these conditions, making them an ideal choice for use in modern defense and aerospace industries.

Structural Ultracapacitor Energy Storage

The concept of structural energy storage seeks to synergistically combine the mechanical, load-bearing qualities of chassis infrastructures with the electrical, power-delivering capabilities of contemporary energy storage solutions. Capacitor sizes and shapes are tailored for space constrained and unusual shapes where conventional cylindrical or prismatic solutions are difficult to integrate. Applications target either a reduction in system size or an augmentation in system power and energy. Strong candidates for this technology include: Satellites (CubeSats, NanoSats), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Robotic, Platforms, Cargo Modules, Micro-sensors, Missile Systems, Underwater Vehicles, Light Military Vehicles, Electric Vehicles, Electric Motorcycles, Scooters, Motor Housings, Integrated Renewable Storage, Race, Cars and Motorcycles, Small Consumer Electronics, Battery Chargers, Hybrid Battery Systems.

FastCap's® Ulyss ET for EM Telemetry

The Ulyss ET Systems boosts signal, reduces cost, and improves data rate. In this paper, we’ll introduce FastCap’s® Ulyss ET (ET) as a solution for EM telemetry that boosts signal, reduces cost, and improves data throughput. EM telemetry is a method of transmitting digital information to the surface during Measurement While Drilling (MWD) and Logging While Drilling (LWD) operations. These systems transmit very low frequency EM waves to the surface through the ground that are subsequently decoded on the surface. These systems, inherently, require an energy storage solution capable of delivering high power on the time scale of a minute.

The Lithium-free Toolstring

In this paper, we’ll introduce Nanoramic's FastCap® Ultracapacitors as a solution for generator energy buffering and bus stabilization. Measurement While Drilling (MWD) and Logging While Drilling (LWD) operations often require constant power to sustain sensors, communication links, and downhole tools for best accuracy and speed. Mud turbine generators are a common source of downhole power. They provide electric power by steering mud flow through a turbine assembly which in turn generates electricity. AC/DC power converters regulate the power bus for delivery to the downhole instruments. However, drilling operations frequently require mud flow to be turned off, disabling the downhole turbine from generating electricity, leaving power bus without a primary source. For this reason, Lithium-thionyl chloride (Li‑SOCl2) batteries are often used in conjunction with a downhole turbine in order to regulate the power bus during those times when mud flow is off. As an alternative solution, Nanoramic® Labs is currently offering high temperature ultracapacitors suitable for downhole energy storage and battery replacement. Nanoramic's FastCap® Ultracapacitors are rechargeable, high power devices that are safe to operate and contain no hazardous materials.

High Temperature Ultracapacitors for Rack Level Data Center UPS

This paper presents the concept of an ultracapacitor module with an operating voltage of 48V for bridge power in UPS systems. The device is able to operate for more than 15 years at 125 F, requiring limited maintenance and reducing the costs of currently utilized lead acid batteries. The yearly cost savings for a medium scale data center using Nanoramic® ultracapacitors instead of lead acid batteries is projected to be $500k. The yearly energy savings in the U.S. for running data centers at 125 F is projected to be 31.5 TWh, while the energy savings related to energy storage cooling elimination is projected to be 130 GWh.

Cube Satellite Hybrid Energy Storage

Cube satellite payloads are advancing to require high power capabilities in the same small and modular form factor. Traditionally, the limited surface area and volume of a cube satellite has limited the practical power limit of cube satellites. To the extent that the energy will be generated by solar panels, cube satellites have a limited round trip energy budget. Increasing solar panel efficiency and complexity alleviates the energy issue to some degree. Both however, occur at the expense of the original cube satellite advantages of being inexpensive, small, and reliable. As such, the objective of high power capabilities must also assume fairly short time scales in order to preserve the energy budget. In order to continue advancing cube satellite technology, Nanoramic® is developing a cube satellite cell module that has excellent power density, energy density, and thermal conductivity while supporting a simple and expandable architecture.

Automotive Microhybrids

Strict efficiency goals for manufacture car fleets are pushing engineers toward new technology to increase driving efficiency while keeping costs low. Such technology includes start-stop systems, electric turbo-chargers, propulsion assist systems, and energy recovery systems. Many of these features require an energy storage technology that is both high power and high cycle life, pushing traditional lead-acid and lithium-ion technology past their specifications. Ultracapacitor modules and hybrid systems provide an energy storage solution to meet these requirements. Additionally, Nanoramic's® high temperature ultracapacitor technology enables new design architectures by allowing energy storage to be placed under-the-hood or supported with minimal active cooling, potentially simplifying the vehicle design and reducing overhead costs.
