Chip Capacitor for Backup Power in Solid State Drives
FastCAP's chip ultracapacitor is the first reflowable, slim profile, and low ESR device that fits energy storage requirements for power loss protection in SSDs. In this article we outline the benefits the designer has when using this product vs. tantalum polymer capacitors and other surface mounted ultracapacitors. In addition, case studies are discussed and examples of configurations are presented.

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, FastCap is developing a cube satellite cell module that has excellent power density, energy density, and thermal conductivity while supporting a simple and expandable architecture.

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.
