GaN Systems and WiBotic partner on wireless robot charging

News

Companies to demon WiBotic wireless charging solutions at PCIM Europe in Nuremberg

GaN Systems and WiBotic are working together to provide off-the-shelf GaN-based solutions for high power wireless charging of aerial, mobile, marine, and industrial robots.

WiBotic’s off-the-shelf wireless power system allows rapid charging at hundreds of watts and greater; autonomous charging at multiple locations and multiple times per day without having to spend time docking; greater robot uptime; and no cords and moving parts, so there is no limit on the number of charge cycles a system can deliver.

GaN power semiconductors enable the autonomous wireless charging these conditions require by operating at a high switching frequency. This delivers high power capability with the spatial freedom (large air gaps) needed in the design of charging systems that require no human intervention.

“GaN provides high reliability and when coupled with wireless power systems from WiBotic, the technologies provide an extremely robust and reliable system that never wears out,” says Ben Waters, WiBotic CEO and co-founder. “We chose GaN Systems as a strategic partner because of its unique and best-in-class GaN technology. The result of this partnership is new wireless power solutions that offer higher power delivery across a wide range of applications.”

“Our partnership with WiBotic underscores how wireless charging solutions using GaN technology are changing the world. GaN power semiconductors, operating at high frequency, are enabling several wireless charging advantages from higher power capability to significant level of spatial freedom that are needed in multiple industries,” adds Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems.

Demonstrations of WiBotic wireless charging solutions will be available at the GaN Systems Booth 9-507 at PCIM Europe in Nuremberg, Germany on May 7-9, 2019.
