In 2003, a small team in Pittsburgh set forth to commercialize wireless power based on RF energy harvesting and creating wireless power for a wireless world. Since then, Powercast has grown and created significant intellectual property (IP) around the transmission, reception, and conversion of radio waves for providing power, along with associated applications. Today, Powercast is bringing wireless micro-power solutions to market that enable wireless sensors and other devices to be remotely and automatically charged with Power Over Distance! Imagine a world free of cords for charging your devices!
Powercast brings remote, wireless power capability to micro-power devices such as wireless sensors, data loggers, active RFID and RTLS tags, consumer items and more. The company’s RF energy harvesting technology has broken new ground in remote, wireless power harvesting by increasing the efficiency of converting RF energy (radio waves) into DC power and enabling that efficiency over a wide operating range. With Powercast’s embedded wireless power technology, battery replacement can be reduced or eliminated by trickle charging rechargeable batteries or using super-capacitors and thin-film energy cells.
Powercast’s continuing mission is to increase the range and efficiency by which RF energy is converted into DC power, which can be harvesting from ambient and dedicated sources. In addition the company provides via our distributors, FCC/IC compliant transmitters, modules and chips which, in conjunction with RF Powerharvester modules, enable OEMs/ODMs to create predictable end-to-end wireless power solutions for their micro-power applications.
