Most home appliances and connected devices such as occupancy sensors and smoke alarms take direct AC input from the mains of the home. This presents the challenge of integrating an AC/DC power supply into the often tiny enclosure
One of key features of Murata's small energy device UMA series is quick charge. If using UMA series as main power supply, you can use the equipment soon by quick charge even when power runs out. We explain the reasons why UMA series can be charged
Murata's supercapacitor lets users achieve high-output backup in a confined space by taking full advantage of its low ESR, long life and small size. The video demonstrates backup performance of Murata's supercapacitor
