  • Energous and Flagship, a technology company empowering retailers to make better, faster and more informed decisions for their business and customers – announced the first retail deployment of Wiliot Internet of Things IoT Pixel smart tags energized by WattUp PowerBridges has been deployed at a major retail store in Sydney. All tags in the deployment are energized by multiple Energous WattUp PowerBridges.
  • Energous and Atmosic Technologies, an innovator in energy harvesting wireless System-on-Chips (SoCs) and modules for IoT, are now taking orders for the Wirelessly Powered Sensor Evaluation Kit, which features Atmosic’s ATM3 energy harvesting Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) SoC solution and Energous’ FCC-certified 1W WattUp PowerBridge transmitter.

Energous received approval by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) in China for IoT applications in April 2022.

“As we continue to establish Energous in the marketplace, we are very excited to share today the FCC’s approval of our 15W WattUp PowerBridge,” said Cesar Johnston, CEO of Energous. “This is a breakthrough approval for Energous as our new generation WattUp PowerBridges are the first to deliver 15 times more power with no distance limitations than previously authorized. Additionally, we continue to fulfill additional orders of WattUp PowerBridges. We are also excited about our work with Flagship, which represents our first deployment of a wireless power network for RF-tags. Together, these milestones highlight our significant progress advancing our RF-based charging for wireless power networks, and the success we are having securing important regulatory approvals and forming key partnerships.”
