Maxwell Technologies Inc. has announced that its BOOSTCAP ultra-capacitors showed no significant effects from either gamma or proton irradiation in tests conducted by NASA, and met or exceeded expectations in other environmental stress testing performed by the Johnson Space Center (JSC) earlier this year.

"Ultra-capacitors already are recognized as a standard energy storage and power delivery component for commercial applications in consumer and industrial electronics and transportation systems," said Robert Tressler, Maxwell's VP of sales and marketing. "This performance in rigorous tests conducted by NASA and JSC, coupled with our technical expertise and customer relationships as a supplier of space-qualified microelectronics devices, give us an immediate opportunity to market ultra-capacitors for space applications that require extremely high reliability and radiation tolerance."

Maxwell's microelectronic products for the space market include memory modules, power modules, and single board computers that incorporate proprietary shielding technology and other radiation mitigation techniques to provide guaranteed life-of-the-application performance and radiation tolerance.
