Relay employs wireless power to bring innovation to its remarkably simple device.

Challenge

Relay+ is a screenless, push-to-talk communication device that has expanded beyond family use to facilities management, food services, golf courses, hospitality, healthcare, large venues, construction and more. It even solves challenging communication issues during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Four years after launching Relay, the team sought to further simplify the device, while improving its durability and performance. After initially working with their semiconductor partner, IDT, Relay was referred to NuCurrent to implement a custom wireless power design that could achieve both objectives.

Solution

In an effort to replicate some aspects of the smartphone experience, Relay needed its wireless power solution to be compatible with the industry’s leading wireless power standard: Qi. At the same time, Relay sought to improve its tap-to-pair reliability; NuCurrent did so by utilizing patented MLMT coils to integrate Qi & NFC antennas on the same substrate.

NuCurrent worked alongside Relay’s product development team to streamline their mechanical design in a way that would employ wireless power as a next-generation feature, while improving the device’s Bluetooth, charging, and tap-to-pay capabilities.

Results

The Relay+ push-to-talk device garnered mass attention from outlets such as PCMag, Fast Company, and Reviewed, as a remarkable alternative to smartphones and walkie-talkies for children, workforces, and those in quarantine.

NuCurrent’s wireless power solution can be found in Relay+ devices available for purchase today.
