LTC3350 alternative for more than 4 supercaps

Hello,

For a design I need to use 8 super capacitors. I have used the LTC3350 successfully for a design, and I would like to know if do you have any alternative which can be used with more than 4 caps.

Can I still use the LTC3350 with 8 capacitors, considering that I make groups of 2 in parallel, so to have the equivalent 4 caps?

Thank you very much,

Patricio

  • Hello Patricio,

    i think using a paralell pair is doable, as long as you're aware of the telemetry data which reports Capacitance and ESR is valid for the complete pair. But for the progress of the supercap technology: have you checked the bigger types in your supercap model family yet? There are normally cheaper and smaller than 2 smaller supercaps in parallel
