Energous Introduces 10 Watt, GaN-based Near Field Wireless Charging Solution

Energous Corporation has announced a new, GaN Based high-power, Near Field WattUp charging solution for electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, smart speakers, game controllers and drones. The new high-power Near Field WattUp transmitter solution is capable of charging devices with up to 10 watts of energy, significantly increasing the amount of power delivered to receiving devices and eliminating connectors and charging contacts for a much wider variety of devices.

Technical specifications of the new, high-power Near Field WattUp charging solution include:

  • GaN-based 5-10W RF receiver IC
  • GaN-based 10-15W RF Power Amplifier (PA)
  • RF-based charging solution allows for full 2D / planar movement
  • Support for 90° charging angles (sideways charging)
  • Smaller Receiver (RX) size
  • Superior accomodation of metal and other foreign objects
  • PA integration into overall system leading to a lowered BOM cost
