Share Article

CAP-XX Limited (LSE:CPX) today announced that its supercapacitor-based BriteSound(TM) Power Architecture was shortlisted for the Passive & Electromechanical Product of the Year in the European Electronics Industry Awards (Elektra 07). Specifically, the CAP-XX HS206 supercapacitor was selected as an enabling technology to overcome battery power limitations in a music phone for a richer music experience.

    Organized by Electronics Weekly magazine, the annual Elektra awards honor outstanding electronic products, companies, and professionals, as selected by an independent panel of industry experts.

In a mobile phone equipped with BriteSound, a CAP-XX HS206 supercapacitor delivers five-watt power bursts to offload peak-power functions from the battery. This doubles audio power for rich-sounding music with a strong bass beat, and eliminates the distortion caused by wireless transmissions while listening to music.

Earlier this year, BriteSound was also chosen as a finalist in the 2007 Design News Golden Mousetrap Awards. Another CAP-XX BritePower architecture for mobile phones, BriteFlash(TM), was chosen as a finalist in EDN magazine's prestigious Innovation Awards for 2006. In camera-phones equipped with BriteFlash, a supercapacitor powers high-brightness LED flash.

The winners of this year's Elektra Awards in 16 categories will be announced at a gala dinner on December 12 at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London. For more information:
