Energous Corp (NASDAQ:WATT) has developed WATTUP technology consisting of proprietary semiconductor chipsets, hardware designs, software, and antennas enabling RF-based charging for electronic devices, providing wire-free charging solutions for contact-based charging as well as at-a- distance charging to enable charging with mobility under full software control ultimately possible.
The company also announced the appointment of Daniel Lawless as the new VP of regulatory affairs.
Energous is currently developing a solution that can be used to charge electronic devices by surrounding them with a three-dimensional, focused radio frequency (“RF”) energy pocket. The company is currently engineering solutions expected to enable wire-free transmission of energy for “near-field” or contact-based applications and also for the applications up to 15 feet in a circular charging envelope or radius of up to 30 feet.
Energous is also busy developing a Far Field transmitter technology to seamlessly mesh- a network similar to WiFi routers for forming a wire-free charging network allowing the users to charge their devices as they walk from one room to the other or throughout a huge space. The mobility, distance, and power capabilities of the WATTUP technology by Energous received validation by an internationally recognized independent testing lab in October 2015.
Daniel Lawless To Take Over As New VP
Energous Corporation recently announced the appointment of Daniel Lawless for the position of vice president of regulatory affairs with immediate effect. Lawless earlier was working with Broadcom where he took care of the technical operations team needing government regulatory approvals, deployment of first-to-market technologies and high volume manufacturing. Lawless will be replacing Jeff McNeil who wishes to pursue a leadership role in operations outside Energous.
According to the CEO of Energous, Stephen R. Rizzone, the company is indebted to Jeff for achieving the first FCC Part 18 power-at-a-distance certification. Rizzone said that Jeff was appointed initially to build out Energous Operations which now do not seem necessary now. The CEO of the WATTUP developer, a revolutionary wire-free, power-at-a-distance charging technology stated that the global experience of Daniel and strong customer orientation will be critical assets as the company now plans to deploy its technology in the market in 2018.
