Presentation Summary

• Applications using an energy harvester and supercapacitor
• Solutions and the tradeoffs for designing the power circuit for cost and efficiency.
• Applications that have low average power, capable of being supplied by a solar cell, vibration transducer, RF scavenger, or thermoelectric harvester, with occasional peak power bursts supported by a supercapacitor to capture and transmit or display data.

Company Profile (Cap-XX)

Cap-XX logo
CAP-XX develops, manufactures and sells thin, prismatic supercapacitors with high power and energy density for use in space-constrained electronic devices. CAP-XX has also developed large supercapacitor cells for automotive and grid storage applications. Supercapacitors resolve the performance limitations of batteries and other current-limited power supplies, and provide backup power if the primary power source fails.
 
CAP-XX supercapacitors, which are also produced under license by Murata, enable manufacturers to make smaller, thinner, longer-running and more feature-rich devices such as camera phones, solid state drives, handheld PCs and battery-free condition-monitoring systems using the company's BritePower™ architectures. CAP-XX's singular focus on supercapacaitors enable it to offer superior technical and applications support and continue to develop innovative products. The company is listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in London.
