Pump Up the Volume: Enhancing Music Phone Audio Quality and Power Using a Supercapacitor for Power Management

As multimedia and music phones grow in popularity, consumers want an iPod-quality, uninterrupted audio experience without the buzzing and clicks associated with wireless transmission. This article describes the problems delivering high power and high quality audio in music-enabled mobile phones and how a supercapacitor can overcome them.
