[INQ. NO. 2108E08] VINATech Co., Ltd. developed the original technology involving Carbon Nano Fiber (CNF) through independent research projects in 2002. Subsequent development includes different carbon solutions including activating carbons, controlling the shape, composite and metal impregnated activation.
VINATech has developed and produced in-house its carbon support, catalyst and Membrane Electrode Assembly (MEA) featuring excellent corrosion-resistant characteristics.
VINATech has improved the fuel cell’s lifecycle by using crystalline carbon as catalyst support.
VINATech is the only company that manufactures core materials of supporters, catalysts and MEAs, mainly focusing on the production of supercapacitor and fuel cell MEAs based on its carbon composition technology (fiber, sphere).
Thanks to its MEA coating technology, the company is able to evenly distribute catalysts within electrodes, resulting in very little performance-deviation among cells.


Based on know-how built up over several decades, the company possesses outstanding technical prowess which, in turn, enables it to provide optimally customized supercapacitor and MEAs for customers and meet their needs.
Its MEA is using for various application and industry such as automotive, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), and Combined Heat Power (CHP) for Low-Temperature Proton-Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (LT-PEMFC) and Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC).


The company has continued to carry out R&D and produce supercapacitor (WEC) used as energy storage systems, Lithium ion capacitors (VPC) and core materials and components of next-generation energy sources including hydrogen fuel cells. Supercapacitor and Lithium ion capacitors are utilized for a number of industries such as new renewable energy, data centers, electronic parts, etc.
The VPC series, an environmentally friendly Lithium ion capacitor, has been developed to reduce costs and improve efficiency.


They offer lower leakage current and improved ESR with longer life, wider temperature ranges, and higher discharge currents than batteries of similar sizes.
VINATech was formed in 1999 to develop and specialize in environmentally friendly energy-storage technology, and especially EDLC (Electric Double Layer Capacitor) supercapacitors. Its mass production started in 2003.
In 2011, the company moved its headquarters to Jeonju city to support growing demand for VINATech’s hy-cap products.
Very soon after the HQ move to Jeonju, VINATech received presidential awards for innovation and continued to expand its R&D team, and further improved production capability and material development.
It already has over 180 patents for material development in place, with more in the pipeline.
The company has four overseas operations in such regions as North America and Europe, as well as 25 global networks, R&D institutes in Korea and Japan, and plants in Korea and Vietnam.

Supercapacitor | Blog Magazine of korean electronics, brands and Goods

Supercapacitor[INQ. NO. 1910E53] Kochip’s flagship product, Starcap (brand name for supercapacitors from Koochip), which has been reborn as a world-class energy storage device company through ceaseless research and development is a future green energy storage device. It can store millions times more capacity than ordinary capacitors, and is an energy storage device.
Starcap supercapacitors manufactured in various shapes and capacities have different application scopes depending on their shapes and capacities. Small-capacity coin-type Starcap products, which are usually less than the 1F grade, act as auxiliary power units in storing data and maintaining a real-time clock (RTC) built in a circuit when power supply is off in mobile phones, drones, multifunction devices, portable music players, audio systems, blood glucose meters, and temperature controllers.
Starcap products with a median-capacity of the 10F to 100F grades and those with a large capacity of 200F to 1,000F grades go into power supply units of devices that need high power for a moment such as electric meters, water meters, gas meters, UPSs, vehicle recorders, automobile black boxes, electronic touch pens, urban railways, solar road signs and wind power generators.
STARCAP supercapacitors have the following merits:

The first priority is high capacity and high power. Compared with general capacitors such as Al electrolytic capacitors and tantalum capacitors, supercap supercapacitors have a higher capacity. They have higher output than batteries and their second advantage is their safety. Their +/- electrodes are symmetrical and unlike secondary batteries, so they have no explosion risk. Third, it is possible to charge/discharge them fast by storing electric energy through the surface adsorption method. Fourth, they can be semi-permanently used as they can be charged and discharged hundreds of thousands of times.
Lastly, unlike raw materials for secondary batteries (especially Li) that have limited supply and can do the environment harm, their raw material is activated carbon that is easy to supply and an eco-friendly carbon material. | Blog Magazine of korean electronics, brands and Goods

Capacitors Co., Ltd. started as an electronic components trading company specializing in tantalum capacitors and, later in 2004, it expanded its business to manufacturing super capacitors, an eco-friendly energy storage device that the company had been aiming for.
Based on its technical capacities built so far, the company is committed to developing new products and technologies to be the world’s best quality and an excellent service provider.


Supercapacitor (EDLC, P-EDLC)

Compared with battery, Supercapacitor has one-tenth of energy, but delivers over 10 times power due to ultra low ESR. It operates more reliably in wider temperature range and its life is semi-permanent, over 500,000 cycles. This product has characteristics of higher power density (low ESR) and over 500,000 cycle life (semi-permanent). This product is used in a need of short-term peak power assistance.



Lithium Ion Capacitor (LIC)

This is an extremely low self-discharge of a lithium ion capacitor, even in high heat environments, ensuring a longlasting charge.
This delivers higher energy density (double that of EDLC), guaranteeing over 100,000 cycle life.
This product has characteristics of low self discharge and low leakage current & long-term backup applications.



Fuel Cell Material (Supporter, Catalyst, MEA) & Carbon Filter

Vinatech develops and sells carbon applied components such as supporter, catalyst & MEA for fuel cell and carbon filter. Among the features of these products are: fibrous carbon & spherical; high electrical conductivity by high crystallization; high anti-corrosion; catalyst on edge.
Vinatech aims to accomplish the VINA mission of “Providing eco-friendly products and contribute to the building of a harmonious society through the happiness of our members.” Toward this end, Vinatech will strive to realize our goal to become the leading company in the relevant industries and create more valuable jobs. | Blog Magazine of korean electronics, brands and Goods


201308E_Korchip Corp develops and produces electric double layer capacitors (EDLC or supercapacitor).

It supplies EDLCs for international and domestic customers including Korean global manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, Hyundai, etc.

Korchip has all core EDLC technologies relating from electrodes and electrolytes to various packages. It has experienced steady growth in recent years based upon these strong technical backgrounds. Strong new demands for EDLCs are rising from various applications including automotive, renewable energy, and etc.

Korchip produces various types of EDLCs with its registered brand STARCAP® including coin type and radial type. The STARCAP® EDLC is widely ranging from 0.022F to 1,500F with 2.3V~5.5V of rated voltages.

EDLC is relatively new energy storage device. It has been used as back-up power source for real time clocks (RTCs) or memory on electronic circuits. EDLCs can give big power in short time repeatedly. Compared to batteries, it is environmentally safe and has longer life.

With these advantages, EDLCs are being selected as assistant energy storage device in pitch systems of wind turbines, electric vehicles, cold cranking power source for trucks or normal-sized cars, car DVRs and in many other new applications.

New STARCAP® EDLC product to be used for the SSD (Solid State Disk or Drive) was released. This EDLC is a square-shaped product of 2.5V 10F. By the composite packaging, sealability is enhanced and deformation of the appearance is prevented. | Blog Magazine of korean electronics, brands and Goods
