When a company has a wireless power challenge that seems insurmountable, they call on NuCurrent. When we bring that dream to life we call it a NuCurrent Power Play

 

Power Play with Efficient Power Conversion Corp

Industry Standard: A4WP

Challenge: EPC’s system requires high efficiency/High Q transmitter resonator in order to demonstrate key benefits to customers.

NuCurrent Power Play: Combine our patented High Q Resonators with EPC’s High Q Power Amplifiers to deliver more efficient systems and optimize EPC's demo.

Outcome: Evaluation kits available for purchase which can be customized to suit the specific needs of customers leveraging EPC’s GaN transistors and NuCurrent’s High Q resonators.

Efficient Power Conversion Corp. produces GaN transistors. Their GaN transistors enable high efficiency switching and power amplification for high frequency wireless power transfer, such as 6.78MHz used in the Rezence standard. By using EPC’s technology, an OEM can have higher efficiency, lower heating, and a BOM with fewer passive components.

BUT… In order to receive all of the benefits of the EPC system, you need an equally high efficiency/High Q transmitter resonator. EPC turned to NuCurrent to fill this need.

“In developing a demonstration circuit to help our customers realize the advantages of GaN technology for highly resonant power transfer EPC explored many resonator designs, including our own” says Alex Lidow, CEO of EPC. “However, nothing matched the efficiency and Q factor of NuCurrent’s designs. Working with NuCurrent's team, we have been able to demonstrate the full value of our high efficiency GaN technology for wireless power."

Based on NuCurrent’s patented ML Wire and MLMT Antenna technology, NuCurrent designed and delivered High Q PCB resonators that are used in EPC’s evaluation kits and which can be customized to suit the specific needs of customers leveraging EPC’s GaN transistors.
