LONDON — Thin form supercapacitor and energy management system designer CAP-XX Ltd. has signed a letter of intent with Murata Manufacturing Corporation of Japan to establish a partnership to provide high performance supercapacitors to the mobile hand-set industry and for other applications.

Murata will focus on mass production, sales & marketing and in parallel CAP-XX (Lane Cove, Australia) and Murata will jointly develop next generation products with CAP-XX leading the material development.

Under the terms of the licence, CAP-XX will receive licence fees and a royalty based on the volume of sales of supercapacitors.
