HYBRID VEHICLES HEAT UP WHEN ENABLING TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS JOIN FORCES AT THE SAE: HYBRID VEHICLES SYMPOSIUM

Maxwell Technologies and ISE Research features BOOSTCAP® and ThunderPack II Components and Subsystems

SAN DIEGO, CA. -- Maxwell Technologies, a leading provider of ultracapacitor technology, and our enabling technology partner, ISE Research, a veteran in heavy duty hybrid component development and integration, are demonstrating the power of collaboration and teamwork at the SAE: Hybrid Vehicle Symposium. Maxwell Technologies' BOOSTCAP ultracapacitors and ISE Research's ThunderPack II will be on display at the Symposium on January 28-29, at the Holiday Inn on the Bay in San Diego. Stop by and visit with our lead application engineers to discuss design-in specifications and guidelines for the transportation industry.


Robert Tressler, Maxwell's vice president of sales and marketing, said that virtually every auto maker in the world is either evaluating ultracapacitors or already has designed them into hybrid gasoline-electric, diesel-electric and fuel cell power trains now in development.

"Ultracapacitors discharge and recharge rapidly, making them ideally suited for capturing and reusing energy generated by braking, which is critical to achieving the fuel economy and reduced emissions consumers are seeking from hybrid vehicles," Tressler said. "That, plus their 'life of the vehicle' reliability and the low cost Maxwell has committed to achieve at production volumes, give them a real edge over battery solutions."

Maxwell sells reliability. We develop, manufacture and market electronic components and systems that perform reliably for the life of the applications into which they are integrated. Our BOOSTCAP ultracapacitors and ultracapacitor-based energy storage systems uniquely address applications in transportation and consumer and industrial electronics. Our high-voltage grading and coupling capacitors are used in electric utility infrastructure and other applications involving transport, distribution and measurement of high voltage electrical energy. Our radiation-mitigated microelectronic products include power modules, memory modules and single board computers that primarily address applications in aerospace.
