NEC Develops Notebook PC & Fuel Cell Unit Set

 NEC's Fuel Cell Computer
Tokyo, Oct 19, 2004 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) and NEC Personal Products, Ltd. today announced development of a notebook PC and fuel cell unit set, which will be exhibited from October 20 - 23 at "WPC Expo 2004" (1*).

This model enables optimum control of the fuel cell in response to start up / shut down and loading of the computer, as well as fuel volume and density, through the adoption of an independent control system within the fuel cell. As a result, a PC, which operates with a fuel cell as its main power source, is realized.

The new fuel cell boasts an output density of 70mW / cm2, which achieves a reduction in power materials of 20% as compared with NEC's conventional model (2*). In addition, NEC's own, unique packaging technology realized miniaturization of the power unit by 20 % in comparison with the conventional model (2*). These developments result in the achievement of a slim, fuel cell unit, on which the main body of the PC is set.

The development of the prototype was aided by a project for developing technologies and products applying nano-carbon technology, jointly organized by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

Notes:

1*: As this model is still a working prototype a date for commercialization has not been established.
2*: This data is in comparison with that of the prototype announced on September 17, 2004.
