Richardson RFPD announces global distribution deal with Maxwell Technologies

Richardson RFPD has announced that it has entered into an expanded agreement with Maxwell Technologies, a developer and manufacturer of capacitive energy storage and power delivery solutions. The new agreement builds on the long-term relationship between the two companies and completes Richardson RFPD’s global network by adding Europe, Japan and Korea to its ultracapacitor sales regions.

Maxwell’s ultracapacitors are designed and built to provide high reliability and extended life performance for a wide variety of demanding applications.

“Maxwell Technologies has long been the recognized leader in ultracapacitor technologies,” said Rafael R. Salmi, Ph.D., Richardson RFPD’s president. “We have jointly supported customers in the renewable energy, transportation and energy storage markets for several years. Richardson RFPD appreciates the opportunity to service additional global applications which will benefit from an ultracapacitor’s ability to handle peak power demands or recapture energy that could otherwise be lost.”

“We have had a successful partnership with Richardson RFPD for many years,” said Franz Fink, Ph.D., CEO, Maxwell Technologies, Inc. “Their history of providing sales support as well as technical expertise has served our customers well. We now look forward to additional successes from them in Europe, Japan and Korea.”

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
