Sydney, Australia - May 25, 2010 - Mr. Pierre Mars, vice president of quality and applications engineering for CAP-XX Ltd (LSE:CPX), will speak at both the IDTechEx Energy Harvesting and Storage Europe and Sensors Expo conferences on the power management challenges of battery-free wireless sensor networks (WSNs) powered by environmentally-harvested energy.
Pierre Mars, VP of quality and applications engineering for CAP-XX, is a published authority on power management architectures for space-constrained electronics devices.
He jointly holds three patents on supercapacitor applications and has held management positions at Racal Defence Electronics, Chubb Electronic Security, CAE Pty Ltd and Honeywell Industrial Control.
He is also a member of the IEEE.
WHAT,WHERE & WHEN:
At IDTechEx Energy Harvesting & Storage Europe in Munich, Germany, May 26 - 28:
Mr. Mars was invited to teach the role of supercapacitors in the Energy Storage master class on Friday, May 28 at 2:15p.m. Led by the IDTechEx CEO and chief analyst, Raghu Das, this master class will assess the options for energy storage, including batteries (thin film, flexible and secondary batteries will be covered), supercapacitors (also known as ultracapacitors) and super-cabatteries.

In the June 7 Pre-Conference Symposium, "Power Management: Energy Harvesting and Storage," Mr. Mars
was also invited to teach the role of supercapacitors, "Bridging the Power Gap between Energy Harvesters and Peak-Power Applications Using Supercapacitors.
Moderated by industry expert Randy Frank, the session will explore energy harvesting technologies, and other system aspects such as high efficiency, low-power microcontrollers, wireless connectivity and advanced batteries.
