In recent months, there have been reports of Apple's intention to invest in long-distance wireless charging technology. Now, the latest report shows that Apple's supplier Dialog has already entered into a partnership with Energous, the leader in wireless charging industry. It is even more convincing that the next generation iPhone will support it. Wireless charging.
According to foreign media company Fast Company, Energous accepted a $10 million capital injection from power management chip maker Dialog SemiConductor. Eergous CEO Steve Rizzone said in an interview with Fast Company: "We will hand over all chip operations to Dialog. All Energous technology will be sold under the Dialog brand, and all orders will be handled by Dialog."
Energous has developed a wireless charging technology called WattUp RF, which uses a technology to receive power through printed circuits on the board. The entire process can be controlled by software with a maximum charging distance of up to 15 feet (about 4.5 meters).
It is worth mentioning that Earnergous earlier this year indicated that they are working with a top company in the consumer electronics industry to deploy WattUp technology.
