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.

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.

VP Applications Engineering, CAP-XX
(Australia) Pty Ltd Pierre has over 25 years of hardware and embedded software design experience.
He has been with CAP-XX for 9 years where he is responsible for development of new supercapacitor applications.
Prior to joining CAP-XX he held senior technical positions with Racal Defence Electronics, Chubb Electronic Security, CAE Pty Ltd and Honeywell Industrial Control.
has had 15 articles published on supercapacitor applications.
has a B.E. Electrical (1st class hons), M. Eng.
Sc. from the University of NSW, Australia
, and an MBA from INSEAD, France.
He is a member of the IEEE.
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.
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.
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.
will describe how to size and select a supercapacitor, tips when using them, and some design examples.
CAP-XX vice president of applications engineering, Pierre Mars, and Powercast head of technology platforms, Charlie Greene, will present their collaborative paper, "Harvesting RF Energy and Powering a Wireless Sensor Node Using a Supercapacitor," in the energy harvesting session on Monday, May 18 at the Darnell nanoPower Forum in San Jose, California.
"This 'fit and forget' self-generating power source guarantees that sensors deployed throughout a building or local area will receive power without batteries or potentially unreliable environmentally-harvested energy such as solar or heat," said Mars
