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. (http://www.idtechex.com/energyharvestingandstorageeurope10/en/masterclasses.asp)
...
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. (http://www.sensorsexpo.com/pre-conference-symposia/symposium-3-power-management-energy-harvesting-storage)
On June 9 in the energy-harvesting track, Mr. Mars will also present "Using a Small Solar Cell for Harvesting and a Supercapacitor for Power Management in a Wireless Sensor.

Sydney, Australia - October 30, 2009 - On November 4, Pierre Mars, vice president of applications engineering for CAP-XX Ltd (LSE:CPX), will present a technical paper on design strategies using a supercapacitor to overcome power limitations from energy-harvesting sources. Small solar cells, vibration transducers and RF harvesters can supply the average power needed for many applications, but cannot provide the high bursts of power needed, for example, to relay data across wireless networks. Mars will present at the IDTechEx Energy Harvesting and Storage USA conference in Denver, CO, November 3 - 4, 2009.
WHO: Pierre Mars, VP of applications engineering for CAP-XX, is a published authority on power management architectures using supercapacitors for space-constrained electronics devices. He jointly holds three patents on supercapacitor applications and has held executive and technical 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: His presentation, "Using Supercapacitors to Manage Your Power" will outline power architectures using supercapacitors to store the energy from a low but steady energy-harvesting source, and then deliver the peak power needed to gather and transmit data via wireless sensors or over the cellular phone network. Mars will describe how to size and select a supercapacitor, tips when using them, and some design examples.

We talked to Pierre Mars, Vice President for Quality and Applications Engineering at CAP-XX, to find out how Australian innovation could soon make drivers' lives a whole lot easier.
...
"CSIRO was being asked to get external funding for some of their research work, as their budget was being tightened," explained Mars.
...
"The party trick was that you could charge it up, go into a meeting, whack a paper clip across and you'd melt it," Mars said.
After raising some seed funding for the startup, CAP-XX surveyed the market to find the prime focus for its technology, and decided to start making small and slim supercapacitors in a prismatic form factor for consumer electronics such as wireless modems and LED camera flashes.
"Back in 2000...as a startup company we recognised that the automotive industry would be too slow moving for us to succeed," Mars explained.
...
"Instead of starting your car three or four times a day, you are now starting it forty, fifty, hundred times a day," Mars pointed out.
...
So we started looking at it, and we also started getting interest in it," Mars said.
...
Showing off one of the sample units, Mars said the form factor, similar to that of a large prismatic lithium-ion battery, allows for easier system designs, and is easier to pack into a smaller space compared to cylindrical cans.
"This has been made by off-the-shelf production equipment that was designed to make lithium-ion batteries," Mars said.
"That is why we can set up a low-volume line here cost-effectively, because we can buy some of the key equipment at reasonable prices from China. That's what makes the automotive market attractive. The capital cost to set it up is reasonable considering the potential returns."
When asked about the potential for competitors to reverse engineer their products, Mars said the ultrasonic welding made it impossible to do so with the coated foil.
"Assembly-wise, anyone can cut it up and see how it's put together, but making the production equipment to do it effectively is non-trivial," he said.
...
"Often we would work with the design team, help the distributor win the design by giving application support to the customer, and then the customer will get the unit made in China or Singapore or Malaysia themselves, and we drop-ship our parts to the manufacturing location," Mars explained.
...
They get an extra one or two hundred horse power on top of what their engine gives them, in a short burst," said Mars
...
And while it is possible that CAP-XX will eventually become a pure IP company, Mars is keen to keep manufacturing its own parts, and be directly in the market, since it allows the company to engage directly with its user-customers, explore new applications, and get feedback.
