Maxwell Technologies Appoints Larry Longden General Manager of Microelectronics Space Products Group

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MXWL) announced today that it has appointed Larry Longden general manager of the company's Microelectronics Group, which develops, manufactures and markets radiation hardened components and single board computers for the space and satellite markets.

Longden began his 32-year tenure with Maxwell as an engineer, specialising in analysing radiation effects on electronic devices and systems. In 1984, he was responsible for introducing the company's first radiation hardened product, a "nuclear event detector", which senses potentially damaging radiation effects and shuts down sensitive electronic systems to avoid or
limit damage. Since 2000, he has been responsible for implementing Maxwell's Microelectronics product strategy of combining proprietary radiation mitigation technologies with commercial semiconductors to produce and market high-performance, space-qualified components and systems.

"Larry has been instrumental in dozens of new product introductions,including the SCS750 single board computer for space that Northrop Grumman Space Technologies selected over competing products from several leading space products OEMs to handle both spacecraft control and data handling for the U.S. government's next generation weather satellite program," said Dr Richard Balanson, Maxwell's president and chief executive officer. "Under his leadership, the Microelectronics group has literally come out of nowhere to establish itself as a respected supplier to a very demanding and competitive industry."

Maxwell is a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative,cost-effective energy storage and power delivery solutions. Our radiation-mitigated microelectronic products include power modules, memory modules and single board computers that incorporate powerful commercial silicon for superior performance and high reliability in aerospace applications. Our BOOSTCAP ultracapacitor cells and multi-cell modules and POWERCACHE backup power system provide safe and reliable power solutions for applications in consumer and industrial electronics, transportation and telecommunications. Our CONDIS high-voltage grading and coupling capacitors help to ensure the safety and reliability of electric utility infrastructure and other applications involving transport, distribution and measurement of high-voltage electrical energy.
