Maxwell Technologies, Inc. develops, manufactures, and markets energy storage and power delivery products for transportation, industrial, information technology, and other applications and microelectronic products for space and satellite applications. Products and Applications The company’s products incorporate its know-how and proprietary energy storage and power delivery and microelectronics technologies at both the component and system levels for specialized applications that demand ‘life-of-the-application’ reliability. Ultracapacitors Ultracapacitors, also known as electrochemical double-layer capacitors (EDLC) or supercapacitors, store energy electrostatically by polarizing an organic salt solution within a sealed package. The company links its ultracapacitor cells together in multi-cell modules to satisfy energy storage and power delivery requirements of varying voltages. Both individual cells and multi-cell products could be charged from any primary energy source, such as a battery, generator, fuel cell, solar panel, wind turbine, or electrical outlet. Ultracapacitors provide a ‘solid state-like’ solution to buffer short-term mismatches between power available and power required. Additionally, ultracapacitors offer the advantage of storing energy in the same form in which it is used, as electricity. The company offers its ultracapacitors cells with capacitances ranging from 1 to 3,000 farads. Applications, such as hybrid-electric bus, truck and auto drive trains, electric rail systems and UPS systems require integrated energy storage systems consisting of various ultracapacitor cells. To facilitate adoption of ultracapacitors for these larger systems, the company has developed integration technologies, including proprietary electrical balancing and thermal management systems and interconnect technologies. It holds patents for certain of these technologies. The company offers a range of standard multi-cell modules to provide integrated solutions for applications requiring approximately 1,500 volts of power. Its standard multi-cell products each incorporate from 6 to 48 of its cells to provide ‘plug and play’ solutions for applications requiring from 16 to 160 volts. In addition, its multi-cell modules are designed to be linked together for higher voltage applications. High-Voltage Capacitors Electric utility infrastructure includes switches, circuit breakers, step-down transformers and measurement instruments that transmit, distribute and measure high-voltage electrical energy. High-voltage capacitors are used to protect these systems from high-voltage arcing. The company’s CONDIS high-voltage capacitors include grading and coupling capacitors and capacitive voltage dividers that are used to ensure the safety and reliability of electric utility infrastructure and other applications involving transport, distribution and measurement of high-voltage electrical energy. The company’s high-voltage capacitors are produced through a proprietary assembly and automated winding process. It sells its high-voltage capacitor products to large systems integrators, which install and service power plants and electrical utility infrastructure worldwide. Radiation-Hardened Microelectronic Products The company designs, manufactures, and markets radiation-hardened microelectronic products that include single board computers and components, such as memory and power modules, for the space and satellite markets. Majority of these products incorporate its proprietary RADPAK packaging and shielding technology and novel architectures that enable them to withstand the effects of environmental radiation and perform reliably in space. The company designs and manufactures products that allow satellite and spacecraft manufacturers to use commercial semiconductors that are protected with the level of radiation mitigation required for reliable performance in the specific orbit or environment in which they are to be deployed. Marketing and Sales The company markets and sells its products worldwide through both direct and indirect sales channels for incorporation by integrators and OEM customers into a range
