Wireless charging module eases integration of WattUp technology
Wireless power technology company Energous Corporation has announced a new wireless charging transmitter module designed to ease integration and adoption of the company's next-generation wireless charging solutions.

The EN7410M wireless charging transmit module is designed to reduce the footprint of the company's WattUp RF-based wireless charging technology within a wide array of devices, including consumer, industrial, medical, and military applications. The module, says the company, is suited for incorporation into devices such as smart speakers, medical devices, laptops and tablets, and other devices, enabling them to send power to charge a variety of potential WattUp-enabled receiver devices such as fitness bands, smart watches, game controllers, hearing aids. and more.

"Our goal with this new, highly integrated module is to better support the long and increasing list of prospective customers who have specific product applications,” says Stephen R. Rizzone, president and CEO of Energous. "By making it easier to integrate the WattUp technology, the module will significantly reduce the effort and time required to integrate it into end user devices, thereby accelerating our customers’ product cycles and reducing the time and cost to bring these devices to market.”

The EN7410M module combines the company's fully integrated DA4100 WattUp power transmitter with its high-power, high-efficiency RF power amplifier, DA3210. It offers the following features:

  • Small-footprint module at 31 millimeters by 16 millimeters
  • Low-cost PCB technology
  • 1W maximum power output
  • On-board harmonic filter
  • RF output via pin or on-board U.FL connector
  • Bootable UART Host interface for connectivity
  • I2C master for peripheral control

Cesar Johnston, COO and executive vice president of engineering at Energous says, "This new module includes our award-winning hardware technology, as well as the software needed to integrate into the device and communicate with wearables and other items being charged through our wireless receiver technology. By making it easier for developers to use our WattUp technology, this module will increase the number of potential applications that benefit from wireless charging 2.0."

The EN7410M module is available now.
