PolyCharge America has announced that it has closed a strategic investment from SFM Holdings, an investment arm of Mursix Corporation.
The Arizona-based capacitor technology company is a spin-off of Sigma Technologies. It was formed in 2017, culminating from a long-standing partnership with Delphi Technologies, to commercialize its NanoLam technology.
NanoLam is the technology for the production of high energy density, high temperature, capacitor products for vehicle electrification. Mursix Corporation is a manufacturer of precision components for the automotive, appliance, alternative energy, electronics, security, and other markets.
All electric drive vehicles require power inverters to convert DC voltage from the battery to AC voltage, which is required to drive the motor. The DC-link capacitor serves a critical and necessary role in all inverters used in today’s electric vehicles.
Existing wound film capacitors take up significant space within the inverter, are heavy, exhibit shorter lifetimes, and are performance limited at higher operating temperatures. PolyCharge, using its proprietary NanoLam thin-film dielectric technology, addresses all of these concerns.
New Capital from Mursix will help fuel PolyCharge’s continued innovation and leadership in commercialization of high energy density, high temperature, capacitor products for vehicle electrification.
