RF Energy Harvesting, Wireless Power, Passive/Active Sensors
Founded in 2003, Powercast is the pioneer and leader of RF-based long-range power-over-distance wireless charging technology. Its tiny Powerharvester®receivers, embedded in industrial sensor systems or consumer electronics devices, harvest RF energy sent over the air from either a dedicated transmitter or anticipated RF sources, such as UHF RFID readers or NFC POS readers. The Powerharvester then converts the RF to DC to either directly power that batteryless device or recharge its batteries.
Since 2003, Powercast has provided solutions that combine its FCC-approved transmitters and high-efficiency receiver chips to enable over-the-air recharging of one or many devices.
Two long-range transmitters serve different markets. Powercast’s Powercaster® transmitter was FCC approved in 2010 for commercial and industrial applications, and its PowerSpot® transmitter was FCC approved in 2017 for consumer electronics.
