17 Jun 2019
Energous Corporation, incorporated on October 30, 2012, is engaged in developing a technology called WattUp that consists of semiconductor chipsets, software, hardware designs and antennas that can enable radio frequency (RF)-based wire-free charging for electronic devices, providing power at a distance and enabling charging with mobility under software control. Its technology can be utilized in a range of devices, including wearables, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, smartphones, tablets, e-book readers, keyboards, mice, remote controls, rechargeable lights, cylindrical batteries and any other device with similar charging requirements that would otherwise need a battery or a connection to a power outlet.
The Company is engaged in developing a solution that charges electronic devices by surrounding them with a contained three-dimensional (3D) RF energy pocket (RF energy pocket). The Company is also engaged in developing its transmitter technology to mesh, to form a wire-free charging network that will allow users to charge their devices as they walk from room-to-room or throughout a large space. The Company has developed multiple transmitter prototypes in various form factors and power capabilities. The Company has also developed multiple receiver prototypes, including smartphone battery cases, toys, fitness trackers, Bluetooth headsets, as well as stand-alone receivers.
The Company's technology solution consists principally of transmitter and receiver application specific standard products (ASSPs) and antenna designs driven through algorithms and software applications. The Company has developed a building block approach, which allows the Company to scale its product implementations by combining multiple transmitter building blocks and/or multiple receiver building blocks. Its power router, or transmitter, locates the receiver(s) in 3D space through technology it has developed using Bluetooth communications. The transmitter, through software control, generates a controlled and contained RF-waveform to create an RF energy pocket around the receiver(s). Its transmitter uses software algorithms to direct, focus and control its RF waveform in approximately three dimensions as it transmits energy to a moving object (such as a user holding their mobile device as they walk around a room).
